Introducing SaxonScript Professional,™ the mosl powerful and sophisticated PostScript Interpreter 
available on the commercial market. It's like toming your daf matrix, ink-jet or laser printer into a 
full fledged PostScript printer, with the added flexibility of being able to edit and manipulate 
individual files! On printers equipped with resolutions of 300 dpi or more, the output quality of 
SaxonScript Professional actually exceeds that of 300 dpi Adobe PostScript laser printersi 
Halfloned areas in particular, are consistently sharper, more detailed and feature better transitions 
between various levels of grey than comparable images produced by using PoslScripl,

have a grainy appearance because of PoslScripi's inability to 
produce irregularly shaped halftone cells.

based or the ASOD but ii fitted with 
the enhanced ship set, one megabyte 
of mem&ry and runs the Workbench 2 
operating ^stem. 

The enhanced chip set bdudes the 
Super Agn«s and Super Denlse chips 
which give the computer improved 
sound and graphics, arid WDricbench 2 
is an improved version of the operating 
system with a mor* attractive appear- 
ance and added features. 

While Commodore have not fixed a 
price or mafketing plan far the 
machine, experts believe the price will 
stay at OJ- dose to the current £359 J9, 

The move casts doubt on whether 
AS 00 owners will have an option to 
upgrade their operating system to 
Workbench 2 hut as Amiga Comptitinq 
exclusively confiriried last month. 



upgrades for other models in the family 
will be available by the end of the year. 
But even before ASOOPs arrive, standard 
ASOOs are to have one rr exabyte of 
memofy, 

The computer has always had half a 
megabyte ol ram, and for several 
months had a 51 2 K upgrade included 
in the bo», The extra power will make 
the A500 an jittractive buy for most 
home applications, such as word pro- 
ces^sing and accounts. 

The new version, which could be 
available before Christmas, wilf have 
the additional memory already fitted to 
the motherboard and its price will 
remain at £199.99. 

It w^ll feature in the Cartoon Cfasslcs 
bundle, which will be at the centre of a 
£3.5 million television advertising cam- 
pai^ during Christmas. 

The A500 is the firm's best selling 
version of the Amiga, with 6?5,000 
units already in the UK and a forecast of 
grovrth of a further 180,000 by the end 
of this year. 

With 1991 sales of 250,000, the 
Amiga remains the best selling home

AmigaDOS 2.04

'jN£ th! of rswi (ram DfvCon that

VVha? this nneans for a UK releaic 
' «i unknown, since each countfy's 
Siiles company will decide when to 
release the upgriiide. But by 
October the packacjei, manuals, 
rgms and di-sks should be ready to 

0. 

While many Uieri have grown 
impatienl waiting for this 
AmigjDOS upgrade, it's worth the 
wdit. ThE release 2,04 of 1991 ii 
very diflferenl (fom the release 2.00 
thai shipped witli the Amiga :)000 
in 1390. 

Mast of Ihe detay resulted from 
Commodore's wis* decision to add 
a number of routines to make 
poorly-wrillen saftwarf nwre com- 
patible. It was easy to tell which 
programs broke the rules under 
early versions ol 2.0 - they invari- 
ably crashed. But release 2.04 will 
run more than 9(3 per tent □( exist- 
ing Amiga soltware. 

Now there's no reason nol to 
upgrade your Kickstart, And the 
exlr,! time gave Commodore the 
chance to finish their Compu- 
graphic ojlline font technology, 
giving Amiga owners access to 
smooth fonts in any size.

Report by Denny 



Future looks good for Amiga 



THE 1991 North American Amiga 
Developer's Conference was held in 
Denver, Colorado - the Mile-Hjgh City - 
September 3 to 7, As I write this, I'm ftj^ 
ing home from the conference, feeling 
awfully good atout the future of the 
Amiga. 

Unfortunate!)', most oi what was dls^ 
cussed at this year's DevCon is under 
strict non-disclosure. Developers can't 
talk about whafs coming until after 
Commodoce officially announce any 
new products, 

Howevef, ;y^u can take heart in know- 
ing that eviderice abounded at DevCon 
that issues such as better graphics, 
sound, and new Amiga markets are high 
priofities in ComnKxJofe's future plans. 

While the lay ofis announced last 
month were a bit disconcerting. 
Commodore still have more emptoyees 
in research and development than in 
most years previous, and they're hard at 
work developing neat stuff. One of the 
highlights of DevCon occurred when 
members of tfie CDTV ar*d AmigaDOS 
release 2 development teams paraded 

Perfectly fascinating 

FROM the creators of Empire, possibly the most addictive war game of all tinve, 
comes the Perfect General. Authors Mark Elaldwin and Bob Hakosky have outdone 
thems«tves with this superbly playable battle game, 

Uke the earlier Empire, The Perfect General's biggest strength comes hgm. its sim- 
plicily, AJI actions can be i^nitiated with the mouse, joystick at keyboard. 

Yctu'ne not overburdened with minute details like many of the hex-tMsed war 
games. The computer takes care of minutia such as unit strengths and movement 
limits, You simply move youT units and tetl them where to lire, 

The game'includes 14 scenarios ranging from the simple, speedy First Battle to the 
more comple* Patton Kicks Butt. You have a variiety of units at your command, rang- 
ing from infantry and tanks to engineers wh«o can build mines and bridges. You can 
pky a^insl the computer, agaij^st another player on the same Amiga, or against 
another Amiga or PC running 
the Perfect General using a 
modem. 

The game is hard disk- 
ffistaltable, and uses only 
word'lookup protection. 
There's a lot ol gameplay 
here for t59.9,S.

WIN A CDTV 




The lucky winner will 
a'so receive this CDTV 
from Commodore 
worth over £600! 



Amigji Computing in con- 
junction wilh The ITV Chart 
Show are offeiing what 
J u rely iias to be the most exciting 
Afniga art cornpetition in the history of 
the machine. 

Anyone can enter and there's abso- 
lutely no need for any specialised 
knowledge of the machine or a pro- 
gramming ianguage. All that's tieqjir^ 
a a spattering of artistic taient and an 
^aginatifln to match the chaiiienge. 

The competition is basfrd around the 
famifiar Chart Show infofmation panels 
which are produced and activated via 
the Amiga. At present thii ii dofte with 
a custcim buiit utility which operates in 
a similiar way to the famiiiar iconj snd 
windows environment of WqritJMnch, 

Simple! 

You'll be glad to know that Amiga 
C^}mputmg wiilii produce the interface 
and as a result all lha,t'i required from 
the entrants is a series of icons which 
suit the various information boxes 
which display the text, such as band 
history, musical infioences, album 
details and so on. 

The icon section of the competition 
not only gives you the chance to 
express your artistic talents but ailso 
offers your the opporturtity to decide 
just what you, the viewers, want to 
know about you favourite artists- 

Ra.thiT than just cresting t^e icons to 
order, you deqi<;Je just whit sort of 



spectac 

the ultimate 



comp 



news, views, snd slanderous gossip 
each of your idols will reveal thinks to 
your des^nef icons. 

This added incentive lets you not 
only add your artistic talent to| the pro- 
gram but also allows you to actively 
take part in the production of the show 
by defining the categories of infonma- 
tion to be displayed. 

because each artist on the show is 
completely different it's important that 
a whole range of icons are available for 
the producer to choose from. As a 
result we're setting a target of twelve 
icons, all of which have to be com- 
pletely individual and which at) a glance 
will tell the viewers jtist what Is lurking 
with the various info boxes. 

Any newcomers to icon creation may 
wefl think twice before embarking on 
such a mammoth task, but believie rm 
once you're in the swing it wfII take no 



time at all to produce the imagery - it's 
the ideas that will be the difficult bit- 
So think and loo^ for originality and 
you could become immortalised on the 
small screen, adding your very own 
piece to tie jigsaw of modem pop cul- 

tUffi. 

|uit twelve icons isn't much to ask 

far a chance at immortality, and the 
opportunity to interrogate your 
favourite jtarj every week. As a result 
wie've added another twist to the com- 
petition in the form of a font designing 
challenge. This all-new font will be used 
to dispHay the answers to the questions 
posed by your icons. 

Once again this won't need any spe- 
cial knowledge but will require a > 




A chance to 

create television 

Whistory, with 

your very own 

artwork

homes every

► deshgner font that'i easy to read and 
suiti the environment of The Chart 
Show's a\l action video fwmal, 

Designing a font should be within 
everyone's grasp th^nitj to the 
Workbenth Extras diik which every 
Amiga owner should have hidden away 
in the back of a long-rorgaltt^n disk 
box. If you boot the disk you'll find a 
utility entilled FED which funniiiy 
enough itands for Font Editor. With the 
aid of tihr:s handy littk utility you 
shouldn't have any probJem creating 
your ver^ own d«iigner font 

If the prospect of creating a com- 
plete character set fills you with mere 
apprehension .than any amount of 
Icons, don't despair - It's perfectly 
acceptable to l(^d a standard Amiga 
font ar>d modify it to your own design, 
but rem^mbef - the more original the 
design., the more likely it is to win. 

An important point is to fmake sure 
yqu create a full character set, not just 
the letters - a camplet'e range of 
nun^cal char^ters is required as well 
as all the essential quotation marks, 
comfnas, colons and so on. 

The only restriction to your calli- 
graphic expksits is the point size of the 
font itseff, which must be between 12 



and 19 polnL Vou can design as many 
fonts within this range as you like. But 
nemembef your ent7 is not valid if the 
fonts are smaJlef than 1 2 point or big- 
^r than 1 9 p<otnt. 

Producing the goods 

Designing your icons is simplicity itself 

and can be don« either with one of the 
many icon creation utilities that lurk 
within the public domain or by employ- 
ing t}paint to produce suitable brushes 
which can then be transformed into 
icons for use with the appropriate infor- 
mation tyoKes. 

The advantage of using icon creating 
utilities such as IconMaster and icon 
Magic is the addition of the F'attern Fill 
option which eflectively gives you four 
extra paint effects to adid to the original 
four colouri of the Workbench screen. 

This is done by aternating cofouri in 
a fill function to give a fine mesh effect 
which Can be applied to any filled area 
within an icon. 

When these e^tra pattern effects are 
applied to the secondary image of a 
twin picture icon, its animated effect 
can be greatly enhanced thanks to the 
AiTiiga's familiar double clic^(in9 pra- 




korrt on rosy wlHi Ofainl 

cess. If you're uinfamil- 
iar with icon creators, 
any good PD library 
will happily supply the 
necessa^ program com- 
plete with documents 
which will guide you 
through the finer pCHnts. 

Regular readers wJII be 
glad to know that they 
could already have the 
necessary software amonrj 
their coverdisk collection, 
the most recent e^tample 
being Huge, the icon utility 
that was given away in the 
March issue of Amiga 
Cornputing, 

Workstation owners also 
have a head start thanks to 
what haj become the most, 
popular of all icon creators, 
namely IconMaster, which is 
just one of the many utilities 
wailing within the disk. 

If we assume that you're 
equipped with either a copy 
of [>paint or a suitable util 
ity, the next job is to ere 
ate your icons. With an 
Icon editor all that's 
required is an idea and 
you're off. 

For Dpaint fans things 
are a little more complex 
First you must specify the 
con'ect resolution which has 
to be medium-res, and inl 
order to save confusion later 
on the available coJours 
should also be set, to eight.

>- yojr project finally geti under way, 
remember to keep yOuf icons to rea- 
sonable proportions in relation tO' the 
strewn. If you^ne fsnuliar with The Chaft 

Show, as Vm sjre jww are, ytij'll have a 
good Idea of what's required, 

If you're one of our many European 
and American readen or even those fur- 
ther afield this translates to about the 
size of a postage stamp fof each of Ihe 

Thii size restriction applies to both 
the first and second stage of the icon so 
don'l let you imagination run too wild 
ai far as size is concerned - after aH, the 
viewers still want to get a look at the 
artists, not just the icons and - of 
course - the juicy details they reveal.

Behind th 



It's just gone quarter past twelve on a 
humid Friday afternoon as my taxi pulls 
up outside an anonymous, talt and oth* 
erwise unlntefesting building irr the 
heart of London's Soho. 

I have amved at what the broadcast 
industry ha conw to know as a "facili- 
taes house". This Is basically a high-tech 
hotel wh'ere T^^ programme rnakert can 
rent ro<)ms or "suites" packed full of 
video equipment- Tfie sort of kit 
needed tci edit a 
programme to 
broadcast quaU 
ity iis awesomely 
accurate and 
toe-CLjrIingly 
ejtpenilve. 
When you 
consider that 
some suites 
cost well 
over £500 
an hour to 
rent yoiu 
get sofTiB 
idea of 
the scale of 





hardware invest- 
ment we are talk- 
ing about. 

There are 
thgusands of 
edit suites in 
London's West 
End where' pro- 
grammes are fin 
ished off by production tearris 
working to strict standards and tight 
deadlines. 

After paying the taxi I am escorted 
to a small room hidden up several stair- 
cases separated by sharp corners and 
fire doors. 

\ am now in "Edit 2" of "Wiseman", 
wfKre The Chart Show's producer Phil 
Davey Is just putting the finishing 
touches to part one of tomorrow's 
show. 

Go with the flow 

The Chart Show is enjoyed every week 

by over two and a half million viewHti, 
so it's Important that every cut and link 
is just right. If an editor has done his 
job properfy, you won't fc>e aware of the 
joins. A good programme should flow. 
This is especially true of The Chart 
Show, where there ire no presenters to 
take up slack or fill in gaps. Every single 
video is linked by graphics sequences. 
Some wipej some fade, some mix but 
they iW bind the programme together. 

It takes a complete working day to 
get one Chart Show down on tape. 
This might seem a long tirrte for around 
SO minutes of television, but by most 
recognised standards it is positively 
speedy. The programme uses a whole 
range of lechnoiogies and techniques 
to achieved Its high-tech look and feel. 
Vision miften, character generators, and 
a bank of video recorders all combine 
to produce that unmistakable look. 

We are not here to admire the m&nl- 



visits The Chart 
Show 

tors or flashing lights though. At the 
end of the control desk sits the comput- 
erised star of the show, A lone Amiga 
20OO complete with external drive is 
responsible for the generation and dis- 
play of The Chart Show's icons and 
infonnatlon boxes. 

The Chart Show uses a custom piece 
of software which allows an operator to 
input the Information you seen in the 
dialogue bones and then decide whkh 
icon will display it. The system is by no 
means as ornate as it could be, lase of 
use has taken priority over features, 
but that's only sensiWe considering the 
fast moving environment within which 
it Is being employed. 

Compare the cost of the Amiga with 
the rest of Wiseman's kit in "Edit 2" and 
the hunnble 20DQ is aJmost disposable. 
However the graphics input our trusty 
machine provides to The Chart Show 
has prtwen it invaluable. 

Those Amiga Icons have become The 
Chart Show's hallmark, just as the 
Amiga is starting to become the hall- 
mark of quality video work with the 
onset of 24-bit paint systems and 
Amiga contraiied editors. There's an 
eKCitIng time ahead.

A fully functioning version of Prodata 
which will even save small databases to 
disk? Are you dreaming? 

Prodata 






The best coverdisk does it again 
lAflth ooe of the mojt usehil and 
productive freebies ever to find 
Its way onto our cower. Ainor Software 
have been kind efnough to retesse a 
demo veriton wtiich actoally javes smalt 
databases of up to twenty rwprds, s& 
you can.'t afford to miss this oppflrtu- 
nity to mak* the most of it* 

If you alTieady owr an earlier release 
of Prodata, skip thes« pagei arid dive 
straight into the program. The support 
material in these pages Is itrittty for 
those wtio've never used the program, 
and especially those who wouldn't 
krraw a database from a tm of sardines. 
Right, first things first! Grasping the 
key fimily between thumb and forefin- 
ger, twist gently until the tin is open, 
being careful nol to spill any of the veg- 
etabte oil, as this car make a real mes^ 
of your Amiga keyb&ard. See what I 
mean? How many njf you wefe examin- 
ing the disk for a key? None of you? Oh. 

The program 

Don't worry if you're a database begin- 
ner - at its most Iwsic level, Prodata is 
an absolute doddle. Once you get ycur 
ihead round the jargon, you'll be creat- 
ing your o^wn databases with gaiy aban- 
don. 

To launch the pregram, double dick 
on the coverdisk's icon. Double clicking 
on the prodata program icon, will load 
an. ififoimation screen from wtikh you 
can press any key to start Prodata. 
Atef natively, you can launch the pro- 
gram from the Shortcut menu at the 
top of your coverdisk Workbench 
screen. Don't at this stage press Return 



for the list of files as the screen sug- 
gests. There aren't any on ttie disk, so 

our first [Ob will be to create one. Be 
warned: There's not much free space 
on the disk, so to save a decent sized 
database you may need to copy 
Prodata or delete, say, the machine 
code drawer (always ensure you're 
using a backupl). Hold down the right 
mouse button and select Create New 
Database from the "file" menu on the 
e!ttrtn>e left of the menu bar. 

Vou will now be asked to type in the 
name of t^e new database. Call it 
"coverdisks" and press Return. Two 
more questions on the general nature 
ot the database will be put to you , 

In answer to the first question, which 
asks if your database will allow duplicate 
entries in the \ftdef, field, tj'pe V. If you 
were to answer l^io to thb question, the 
database wouldn't allow two necords to 
have the same entry in the field it uses ai 
the default inde3( (field 1). just press 
Return in answer to the second question. 
Fifteen characters is plenty for the labels 
we'll be giving to fields. 

You should now be asked to type in 
the name of your first data field. The 
brackets to the left of the cursor indi- 
cate the field's parameter^, but all you 
need know about them for the pur- 
poses of this tutorial is that the default 
field is a te*t string (hence the S) with a 
maximum length of fifty characters. 

Our database will have four fi«lds in 
each record, whkh you sfvould name in 
the following order: "Program/File", 
'Disk No.", Type of PrograrnVFilie", and 
"Comments", As you type each one and 
press Return, you will be asked if you 
want your input checked to see if it is

to eich question until you have the 
four fields named, press Return after the 
fourth, then Esc. 



Data entry 



Once the database form has been saved 

to disk, Prodata will ask if you want to 
passwordfratect the file. Answer in the 



negative for now, and press Return to 

go to data entry, 

The demo version of Prodata will 
allow you to create databaies with up 

to twenty records, so there's plenty of 
space to enter your favourite coverdisk 
programs of the past six months or so. 
At this stage, you should type in the rel- 
evant details for the programs you 
liked. As you fill each fieW, press Betum

Hunter III 

Author: Nei! Boffin artd Matifn Stfvfn 

If ymi bought our April isjue, yoy'll 
already have ^een Hunter II, which 
was on that month s coverdlsk, We 
decided to include the latest ver- 
sion becaui« ft has a couple of fea- 
tures which make it a much better 
all-round p<rt>gram - we think you'll 
like 111 

Hunter Is » lample "ripper", 
which meanj it will chew out the 
bits of memory containing i&und 
samples, then save them to d(sk for 
later uk In your own programi or 
MtP/Soundtracker tunes, For thij 
to warJt, there must obTClouily be 
iome sampiles available to rip, and 
there are several ways you can 
ensure this, 

Because of the nature of memofy 
chips, a warm reb&ot (holding 
down CTRL-Amlg*-Amiqa> will not 
fluih their contents, This meani 
that If you play a FD demo or a 
game, then carry out a warm 
reboot, the samples; used In the 
game's or demo's music will usually 
be preserved in memory- 
Hunter can take advantage of 




the situation fae^iause it enables yo« 
to "playback" the contents of your 
computer's chip memory - where 
all samples are stored - until from 
among the Kissing, crackling: noJsei 
you hear a sample you'd like to 
keep. Once the sample has been 
found, you can Jsotftte It using 
Hunter' i Length and Start buttons 
jntll yoL tiave determined its e*aet 
location, then save It to disk. 

The Start button BJetermines 
wtiere in memory the ptsyback will 
begin, and the length button sets 
the amount of memory to be 
played through. By the [udicious 



juggflng of these two settings. It 
should be possible to honrte in on 
any sample present In your 
machine's memory, as these will 
stand out plain and dear from the 
background garbage that is the 
rest of your ehlip ram's contents. 

If this process seems a little ower 
complicated for your tastes, you 
can make use of Hunter's very fast 
search option. By dickincp on one 
of the tw{? buttons uncter the word 
Search, you i»n Instruct Hunter to 
go through ali chip memory In 
search either of arv IFF sample or a 
Soundtracker-type module, 

Neither is perfect, and both vdll 
often entirely miss a lample or 
module. They are both very fast, 
however, and Et's a good idea to 
use them first, then resort to the 
longer and more tedious process 
of checking your memory piece by 
piece If they don't vi/ork. 

The warm reboot method is the 
only way to rip samples from Inac- 
cessible software such as games or 
PD demo I, but there are other 
ways of Urtdlng samples. Hunter III 
can load any sample, module, or 
tune into memory using its Load 
facility^ then trawl through mem- 



ory In the same way as before. 
Hunter III offers several improve- 
ments over Hunter H The most 
usetu( from an Amos user's point 
of view Is the fadlity to load Amos 
sample banks for esamlnation, or 
to save samples as an Amos l>ank 
ready for use in Amos programs. 

This facility makes Hunter the 
only chc(i;ce of sample ripper for 
Amos fans and represents a major 
upgrade from vZ 

The second major extra Is 
Hunter ill's ability to load 
Power?acker data files, uncrunch 
them, and search them for sam- 
pies. It seems these days as if 
everything has to be powerpacker 
compatible, so universal has It 
become as a cruncher, so Hunter's 
new PowerPacker-friendly version 
will ensure it Isn't left out in the 

CH3ld, 

As an added extra, there Is a 
palette control which you tan 
bring up by clicking the right 
mouse button any time Hunter's 
window is acUve- This Is dieslgned 
to (ompiement the Workbench 2 
look of the main panel, an effect 
which can be unsuccessful if the 
screen colours are wrong.

layouts, but for the moment you need 
only select Create New Layout, the last 
in the list. When asked, call the layout 
"flat ", and press Return to go to the 
layout editor. 

You must now define the layout's 
parameters. Most of these don't con- 
cem us as the flat layout will be a fairly 
simple example. 

Type in tlw values shown in the bos 
on this page to create a layout with 
records that appear as thin strips one 
abave the other. 

Since we allow 999 records per 
page, you car* fit as many of your 
records on one screen as possible, mak- 



ing this sort of layout ideal for quickly 
gtanctng through the database. 

When you've typed in all of the 
parameters, press Esc. The screen V4'ill 
change to a graphical fepresentation of 
the layout, and field one will already be 
onscreen ready to be positioned, it 
needn't be moved as it's where we 
want il, so press F to call up a list of 
fields, and double dick on fteld two. 

The field will appear as a line of 
dashes on the editor screen, and will be 
highlighted to show that it is the cur- 
rently selected Tield. We want to move 
it to tf>e right of field one on the same 
line, so hold dcwn the Shift key and use

PicSaver 

Author: Preben Nftiien 



PicSaver is a utility for saving screens 
or parts ot screens as IFF files for later 
use in DPaiU't or any other Amiga aft 
package. For example, all the Virus 
Checker windows grabbed for use in 
this month's disJc pages were grabbed 
using PicSavet, 

To run PicSaver, eithef dick on its 
icon, or run it from CQ by typing 

The program will automatically 
detach itself from the CLl to run in 

the background. 

Three way split 

In use, PicSaver offers three ways to 
save screens or parts of screens. All 
three involve holding down the left 
Ait-Shifl-Ctri keys at the same time. 
To save a full screen, hold down Alt- 



Shift-Ctrl and the S key and the 
presently active screen will be saved 
once you've typed its name and save 
path into the file requester. 

To save a window on its own, 
ensure that the desired window is 
active by clicking In it, then hold 
down Alt-Shift-Ctri-W to bring up 
another save requester. 

The third method involves holding 
down Alt-Shift-Clirl with no other 
keys. A cross-hair will then appear oti 
your mouse arrow, which you can use 
to cut out a portion of the screen in 
exattly the same way you'd cut out a 
brush in OPaint, Click with the left 
mouse button and drag the cross- 
hairs until you've outlined the target 
area, then release the button and 
type your path and filename into the 
requester as nonnai. 

To remove PicSaver, either run it 
again, or press Alt-Shift-Ctri-Esc. 



Virus Checker

The recent outbreak of the Sudani file 
viruj, i particularly nasty piece at wofk, 
prompted ue Co cast around for a good 
general purpose Ittller capable of deal- 
ing with the latest nien<aces. Viirut 
Checkei wai the obviaus choice. 

Installation 

Vou can run the program by clicking on 
ib icon once Worltbench has loaded, 
but by f^r tbe niDit efficient way to nJlfi' 
it Is to include it in the startup wquence 
of yoof hard drive or the disk from 
which you normally boot your system, 
If you continually reboot witlii different 
system disks, it's a good idea to put 
Virus Checker on its own disk and use it 
after each relKJOt, 

To do ttiis, take a blank, lormatted 
disk, install a standard boot btock using 
the coitimand: 

INSULL DDIVE SFO; ^IETI||!II» 

then copy the program across to it 

from lh« coverdisk- Tou can dn this by

If you have two drives^ boot from 
the coverdisk and place the blank disk 
in your external drive. Ne^t, click in the 
CU window left open at the bottom of 
ttw cDverdisk main screen and type:

The entire virus Checker directory wiH 
be copied to the extra drive, and you 
should be able to run It at any time by 

typing,;

If you have a single drive, your best bet 
would be to load Virus Checker into ram 
at the start of the day. If u-sing a wotd- 
processor, far example, you couki then 
check each data disk before saving pre- 
cious documents to it. To copy ttw pro- 
gram to another disk using a single

Now insert the Uank disk onto which

If in future you need to yse the pro- 
gram to check a number of disks, or 
would just like it clos« at hand, r^narr^e 
the disk as VIRUSCHECKER (no spaces), 
and type; 

You can now run Virus Checker by typ- 
ing:

at ar^ time. 

Using Virus Checker 

when activated. Virus Checker first 
checks memory for known viruses or 
suspicious vectors, and removes or dis- 
ables those' found. 

The program next checks all floppy 
drives for known boot block virusK and 
alerts the user to their presence. At this 
stage, ydu have the option to display,

Patriot missile system' in the ihape of 

his Fix Saddam program. The program 
is designed to be used on disks already 
infected by Saddam and, when run, 
attempts to repair any damage inflicted 
by the vinjs. 

There is no cure for disks which have 
been completely kippered by Jaddam, 
but the virus will alter some blocks 
when it firit infects a disk, and it is this 
damage that FlxSaddam is intended to 
repair. To check a disk, put it in one of 
your drives, say DFO;, and type;

The program will then cycle through all 
tracks on the disk, and wall inform you 
when it finds Saddamlsed bbdu.

(f you have ever used an Amiga 
application thdt opSfis a high res- 
olution or interlace screen, ygu 
will hsve notked the rather awful inter- 
lace f ticker that afflicts theie screen 
modes. If ^oi^ us« Desldop publishing 
or Computer Aided Design (CAD) you: 
will probably Find that high resolution 
screeni are essential, and you have to 
find a way to reduM the fliclcer. 

There are several wayj in which you 
can reduce the flicker on a television ar 
standard monitor, such ai the Philips 
CM8a33 Of the Cpmmodore 1084, Yoj 
can reduce the brightriesi level on the 
monitor, c hankie the colajrs, buy an 
anti-g(afe screen filter qr ewen wear 
sun-^lasses. None of thes* methods will 
completely remove the fliicker - Ihey 
WitI ju$t cut the levels down. 

Oe-inteHacers 

If you have decided once and for nM 
that the flicker rnust go no matter what 
the coit is, then you have only one 
option - buy a nruiti^ync rnonitor, 
Depending on what machine you are 
using you will probably need to buy a 
de-interiacer card as well. Thij conve-rts 
the video output from ttve Amiga into a 
stable non-interlaeid output that the 
muitisync can display. 

If you own an Amiga SOO there is 
only one de-interlacer currently avail- 
able lor you - the ICD Flicker Free 
Video board. This board plugs inside 
your Amiga 5M invalidating ycujf war- 
ranty, and will prcibsbly not fit if you 
have accelerators or other internal hard- 
ware added- Once installed, a ribbon 
cable with a 9-pin monitor connector 
hangs out of the back of your m'achine. 
To this you can attach s multisync 
monitor, 

If you want to play garner, or work 
in low or medium resolutlcn you will 
find that fast moving objects, like your 
mouse pdnter, or ^nythjng tinat moves

Does your telly or monitor flicker? 
Do your eyes update your brain 50 
times a second? Maybe it's time you 

looked at flicker-free displays. 

Jolyon Ralph has the details... 



in games, will blur to the 
point that a lot of games are 
totally unplayable. The only 
solution to this, is to use a 
rnqnitor connected to the 
standard Amiga output for 
these modes, either your 
original television or 
medium-reiofution moni- 
tor, or your new multisync 
with an adaptor cable. 

Video slot 

The Amiga ISOO and 2000 
provide a special video slot 
which altows easy initalLation 
of a de-Jnterlacer card. There 
are two such card; available - 
the original Microway Flicker 
Fixer, a tried and tested design, and 
the Commodofe A232Q card. 

The Microway card has been 
^roLind for a couple of years rtow and 
was, until they released th«ir own card, 
strongly recommended by 
Commodore. It fits neatly into the 




What Is flicker? 

Irrtertate fKclter ts unavoidable when using the Amiga wtili a t^lcwisloo or t cheap 
■ ^^if^uf monitor. This is because a single higjT-reiotuliafi screen cannot be tully

ence in brightness levels h4>twcer) Ihe 0(*d frame and the even fram* Ihit cauws

video slot with a 9-pin monitor output. 
Most modern multiiynci have 15-pm 
outpuli rather than 9-pin, so you may 
need an adaptor to plug your monitor 
in. 

Like the ICD board, it does not han- 
dle low or medium resolution very well, 
tleaving you to either run two monitors 
or wire up a cable allowing you to 
switch between the Flicker Fi«er and 
the standard 23-way output. The 
Microway card, unfiite the ICD and 
Commodore card, is not compatible 
with the new ECS screen modes- 

The Commodore A23ZO card uses 



the same de^nterface circuitry that is 
found in the Amiga 30O0 which unlil^e 
the Microway and the iCD products, is 
intelligent. It will de-interlace all high 
resolution and interlace screens, but 
will double-Mian low and medium reso- 
lutions screens. 

This means that not only is the 
image free from blurring, but the thin 
hlacl< scanlines found on ordinaiy mon- 
itor have been removed. The result il a 
clean and sharp image, although it 
doei make low resolution in particular 
seem rather blocky. It is certainly tjetter 
than having to put up with two moni- 
tors qr a switch bOK, 

Switched off 

if yoy don't like the blocky low res or 
for some bizarre reason you want to 
return to the llickeiy intedace, there is a 
disable switth on the card which will 
give you a standard Amiga image. 

The Amiga JOiDO does not need a 
de-interlacer, for it has an excellent 
de-interiacer built in to the machine, 
Any standard multisync monitor, 
including those listed below, will give a 
stable image in hi rei. 

There are a wide variety of multisync 
and similar monitors available which 
will work with the Amiga, Some of 
them will only work with the 
flicker-iiKer installed and active, others 
will also wort with the standard Amiga 
output, or with the 
Comimodore A2320 card in 
fall back mode. For PAL 
machines the monitor 
must be capable ol SOHz 
vertical frequency opera- 
tion, which unfortunately 
rutes out most cheap VGA 
monitors. 

Monitors 

When looking for a moni- 
tor there are a (ew things 
which you must take Into 
consideration. 

Firstly, it must be 
capable of a 50Hz verti- 
cal sync frequency - as opposed 
to a $OHi power supply fre- 
quency, which it must handle if sold 
in the UK. Othenwise your Amiga 
picture will continually roll around 
the icreen with no way of stopping it. 

Some, monitors are capable of a 
S0H2 display despite it not being men- 
tioned in the technical spe>cifications. 
Also, if you wa.nt to use it with the stan- 
dard Amiga cKitput - either direct from 
the Amiga's 2i-p>r\ video port or by 
switching off the Al^lQ card - the 
monitor must be capable of a ISKHz 
horizontal sync frequency. Most larger 
monitors cannot handle this. 

The i&cond thing to check for is the 
screen quality. This is, of course, a com- 
pIcK thing to measure. Watch for the 
dot pitch - this is the distance between 
each group of red, green and blue dots *"

The Tanan MuJtivision 770 Plus LR is 
probabliy the most popular of theie. It 
works fine with both standard Amiga 
output and de-interlaced output. It is a 
14in monitor with an e>tcellent 
anti-glaire tube The dot pitcti ii 
0,31mm, which is average for these 
rwnitcMS, but not e*cellen.l. This moni- 
tor has the distinction of being one of 
the first low-radiation colour monitors 
around which are so sife that even the 
Swedes uie ihem. Appareritly. 

Less healthy, but with a bigger 
screen., is the Taxan Multivision 970 
with its 20" display and O.JImm dot 
pitcti. This monitor has a mediuim,-pef- 
sislence display, which means that 
interlace is cut down considerably even 
without a de-interiacer, because the 
phosphor coating on the screen fades 
more slowly than normal screens. 

If you want the best in quality 
screens, the Takan MuHiviilon 79S pro- 
vides an amailng 0.26mm dot pitch on 
a 14" screen. Unlike the other two Taxan 
monitors mentioned here, it doe's not

Other popular monitors are the AOC 
range. There are two very similar mod- 
els being sold, the Clv(-32S and the 



CM-326, The CM-^25 is a Super-VCA 
monitor rather than a multisync. The 
difference with Super-VCA moriitors i^ 
that rather than working over a wide 
band of frequencies, they can automati- 
cally switch between a few preset fre- 
quencies. 

These monitors are often consider-

ably cheaper than multisyncs, although 
not all Super-VGA displays will work 
with de-interiacers, and Ihey will not 
vmA Vk/ith the new ECS display modes 
or with the de-interiacer turned off. 

The CM-326 is a true multisync and 
will handle all Amiga displays including 
the ECS chipset. Both monitors have a 
good 0.28mm dot pilch and a 14" 
lube. The CM- 12 6 comes with both 
9L^jin and 1S-pin plugt to ht easily into 
any of the three boards available, 
aitfrough you will need to use an adap-

the moment - is the Panasonic 
TX-17031^A. It has a Sony Trinitron 
17" FST screen and a O.^Brnm dot 
pilch. Although it cannot cope with 
standard de-interlaced signals, it can 
cope with the tCS pro<Jucl;ivity modes. 
The screen display is simply excellent 
- it is big enough to allow you to use a 
large display with small fonts and still 
read (hem, but not SO big that you hurt 
your neck constantSy turning your head 
to view both sides of it, it also has two 
sets of inputs, which is useful if you 
have two or more computeri. 

Flexible 

if you have more than one computer, 
multisync monitors can prove a worth- 
while investment. One monitor can 
work not only on the Amiga, but on 
PC's (with VGA, Super-VCA or itwve 
graphics), Appie Macintosh 1 1, Atari ST 
and almost every other type oi com- 
puter you can think of. 

If yoii have an Amiga bridgeboard 
you can forget the crummy slow CGA 
graphics - add a VGA or Super-VCA 
board into your system and plug your 
multisync directly into the bridgeboard 
for the best possible PC graphics. 
Monitors with two or more sets of 
inputs will allow you to wire up the 
bfidgeboard and your Amiga directly to 
the monitor and switch between them 
giving you the best combination of 
Amiga and PC graphics li 
you can have in one

The Amiga a already the primary 
machine in the world of desk- 
top videa, with countlejs titlers^ 
and alJ mannee of Amiiga gen^rat^d 
images finding their way in to botli 
amat«ur and cofflmercia! productions. 

However, jp until now the Amiga's 
role has been merely ttiat of 3 spe^tal 
effects engine, on[y tailed upon to add 
finishing touches ^uch as animations, 
titles and of course glamour where live 
actior is concerned- 

Now fortunately for both the 
machine and it's videophiie owners, 
that's all about to change and the onc€ 
hjmble extension to the average video 
workstation may soon become its heart. 
VideoPilot is one of three systems 
presently leading the field in Amiga 
controlled editing, and over the next 
few monthi we plan to ejiplore ail the 
available options and give ttw ddiriltrve 
guide to the Amiga in tht movies. 

Obvious advantages 

Anyone who's trisd video editing the 
otd fashioned way won't waite any 
time extolling the virtjes of cofnputer 
controlled editing. The endless piles of 
scrap paper, worn out stopwatches and 
an expression that only being up till 
four in the morning can provide, are 
sure signs of the video editing old 
guard. 

The basic principle of any editing 
system is to help keep track of hun- 
dreds, of scenes spread throughout your 
library of unedjt^ tapes, to arrange 
them as required, then to accurately 
assemble the desired shots in a usej* 
defined order, all with squeaky clean 
edits making seamless connections. 

To achieve this, the various master 
tapes need to be either tlm^oded or 
controlled via their tape counters. The 
timecode option is by far the most pre- 
cise of the two and boasts an accuracy 
of +/- one frame, which is as good as 
any system can offer. 

The tape counter alternative isn't 
anything like as accurate but is still 
capable of between 5 and 10 frame 
precision over a period of around 15 
minutes. If you're working witii longer 
tapes, the software can divide the 
footage up In order to keep timing 
within tolerable limits. 

What's in the box? 

Like many dedicated Amiga applica- 
tions, VideoPilot is a connbination of 

both hardware and software - the hard- 
ware element of the equation being a 
multiple input timecode read/write unit 
that synchronises three source players 
which then write to a iburth .mastering 
machine. 

The various machines can be a ma- 
ture of VCfi's and camcorders, all of 
which are coritrolled by either infra red 
or hardwire remote conUol, 

Along with the black box, you 
receive a pair of infra red rodents which 



connect to the VideoPilot and Issue 
commands to the players by taking 
over the role previously undertaken by 
their Own remotes. Also included ts the 
control software, connections and of 
cQvrse the ever-present manual, 

The learning process 

Perhaps Viideaf ilot's greatest strength is 
its versatility and willingness to learn 
how to control the ever-changtng vari- 
ety of available VCfi's and camcorders. 

It's the afore-mentioned infra red 
rodents which provide this power, due 
to their ability to be taught how to con- 
trol unfamiliar machines. This is done 
by aiming the VCR's own intra red con- 
trollers at Video PI lot's surrogate units 
which then learn the required com- 
mands to operate the transport on the 
machine. 

Thij process is done a matter of 
moments in one of VideoPilof s embar- 
rassingly friendly option screens, 
which in this 
case asks you 
to press a func- ' 
tion key for the 
appropriate 
video control, at 
which point a 
bleep sounds \ 
prompting you to ' 
hit the corre- i^ — - — ~ 
sponding button on the VCR's own 
remote. 

After all the commands are com- 
plete, the Amiga assumes full control of 
the VCR from the comfort of the (unc- 
tion keys. Amazing... 

Ha^lrhg explained this impressive tdl- 
ent it's perhaps unlikely that you'll need 
to try it for yourself - there are a multi- 
tude of pre-defined configurations 
already programmed into the software 
and even If you do need to defme com- 
mands they can be stored on disk and 
loaded with the rest when necessary, 

Second only to VideoPilot's fleKibility 
is Its easy of uie, which for a pragrim 
and hardware combination of such

The entire process of configuring and 
operating the syitem is done with the 

rodent, with the only e-xce-ption being 
the operation of the video controls 
which, as mentioned earlier, is done 

with the function keys. 

A prime estample of this process in 
action is the configuration screen which 
displays the rear of the V310 or 
VideoPibt if you prefer, and four selec- 
tion boxes for the various players and 
the recorder. 

Configuring the system Is siinply a 
matter of clicking on the appropriate 
Input On the V310, then on the player 
in questi<in. If your selection is incontct 
the software throws up a warning and 
suggest what couid be the protkfTi, 

to select a player simply requires 
clicking in one of the four available 
boxes until the con-ect make, timecode 
and control method appears. 

It your panlcular player isn't avail- 
able you can add the necessary details 
followed by a trip to the programming 
screen to teach ttie infra red unit the 
coTect controls.

Perhaps the biggest stumbling block 
in both the Amiga and video wortds is 
the seemingly endless supply of 
incompatible timsecodEs which are 
unsuccessfully vying for dominance. 

In th« pr^of^ssional market this 
problem ha long been resolved 
thanks to SMPTE timecode which has 
been the industry standard in TV and 
film fof /ean. 

In music SMPTE also plays an ocea- 
sJoiial role ahng with MTC but unfor- 
tunately video is a minefield of 
formats and VideoPitot does its bit to 
add to the confusion by employing its 
own proprietary code entitled V3TC. 
This, of course, isn't compatible with 
either VITC or Sf^PTE systems but 
does wnri with RCTC Of "artic" as it's 
known and pronounced. 

This happy coincidence is both 
great new; for VideoPilot and Sony 
who are employing this new format 
for use with 8mm camcorders. The 
big advantage of the new ^stefm is its 
ability to retain a full stereo sound- 
track without the need for any modifi- 
cations to the VCR. 

Because VideoPilot reads this new 
format frame accurately it can be 
edited dirett, something which Sony's 
own RCTC editing system has not yet 
mssteried- So for the morrkent if you're 
the proijd owner of Sony's CC[>-V80O 
camcorderj VideoPilot could be the 
perfect choice, 

Uke everything else, the addition of 
i timecode can be a case of swings 
and roundabouts, due to the sacrifice 

more work and less editing it could 
soon pay for its place in your system. 

After all, once the shot selection is 
complete and providing there are no 
tapes to be change, the systemi can be 
left to compile your creation all on in 
lonesome. 

My only criticism concerns tlie limit 
of two infra reds which could csuse 
problems on some srystems, although of 
course four hardwire inputs are 
available for the remaining players. 
The only other disappoinbrnent \i the 
inability to see your edits, prior to mas- 
tering. 

Having had my little moan, both fac- 
tors are more motehills than mountains 
and don't do any real harm to wtiat is 
an very imfwessive pcoduct.

of one of the available audio tracks for 
timecode information. 

If you're working with hi-ft 
VHS/S-VH5 or Bmm units employing 
PCM sound, it will inevitably mean 
that you'll be left with a rrvono sound- 
track, Vo'U could always combine the 
sound from both tracks but of course 
IJie actual Stereo effect would be sacri- 
ficed anyway. 

On non-stereo VCR's and cam- 
corders adding a timecode will com- 
pletely obliterate any available sOur^d, 
SO dubbing to a hi-fi machine might 
well be worth the loss in quality. 

Enhancements 

E,M.R,, the UK distributors of 

VideoPilot, offer a number of addi- 
tional: services to enhance the abilities 
of the system. The first of these is to 
supply a PCM encoder for &mm 
source machines equipped with the 
optional PCM track. The PCM/AFM 
output is then splil into separate 
mono hi-fi tracits for sound, and 
mono PCM for timecode. 

Other machine formats can have 
their pre-amptrfier circuitry and out- 
put sockets modified to keep the origi- 
nai hi-fi sound in Stereo whilst still 
bein^ able to output a separate time- 
code track to the VideoPilot. 

All the necessary work is done by 
E,M.R. who operate a coli'ection and 
del'ivefy sen^ice ushg insured couriers 
to transport the love of your life back 
and forth In perfect safety. 



Because the system supports up to 
three pSayers and a recorder, a whole 
range of connectbns brittle from the 
rear porltons of the biack box, which 
control not only a variety of players 
but also tape formats and control 
systems. 

As a result almost all m:achi'nes 
ran be catered for, providing they 
support either the l-ANC (Control L} 
system, which can either be a five 
pin mini Din socket, a mini jatk or 
alrernativety the aforementioned 
inira red remotes.

WeH, what will they think of 
next? First we had 
sequence dancing, fol- 
tCMftd ty synthronised swimming and 
Df course sequenced music. Now Cold 
Oijks have gone the whole hog and 
produted tfie Amiga's first multimedia 
sequencing patkagns which flajms to 
control every aspect of the marhine's 
van airay of talents - all from one user 
trveifid|y interface. 

If j^oy're anything like me, at first 
you'll probably be a little cpnfui«d as to 
what a mijltimedifl video sequencer 
actually eJoeSy how it does it, and why 
yvu'd want it to do it in the fir^t place. 
Well to dear the air I feet a short expld- 
rutkin is in order. 

Showhiaker's primaiy mission is to 
draw together all the Amiga '& talents 
and apply them in one smooth and 
petfectly sequenced produaioi. To do 
this it employs the Timeline which Is 
the window at the very heart of 
ShowMaicer. 

The Timetirw rs an event display win- 
dow which shows all the elements 
within a production plus their duratror, 
type and pO'Sition within the creatiton. 
The unusual thin^ about what is in 
effect a fairly iStandand Sequencer is it; 
ability to Control a whale range of 
events, whether they be exCernaf 
video sources, internal sojnd effects, 
rnusical backing tracks or, of course, 
aninution.

what ShowMaker is capahte of might

When you first enter the pr&gram, 
yoL are offered the default number of

Moving pictures 

The- first of the 1 2 b the graphics track 
which allows you to generate efther stlli 
frames or animations. These appear as a 
background on to which titles or effects 
can be overlaid. The various back- 
grounds can be produced on any stan- 
dard Amiga paint package, as either 
itandard IFFs or ham imager. 

If for example you want a still image, 
it can be introduced with a variety of 
wipes and fades. Jt will then remain 
onscreen for as long as k spedfjed by 
the Timeline, only being replaced by 



the rtext wipe or fade as the following 
animation or stilj is introduced. 

It is perhaps best to think of the pro- 
cess as a form of video music with vari- 
ous elements playing for a set time and 
theti being replaced by the next section 
of the song. So you might have a video 
ver^e in the form of an animation, then 
a series of stills for a chorus, another 
smaller animation for a middle eight 
and finally back tt> the verse. 

To keep everything smooth and 
stylish, animations can be set to loop 
indefinitely. This ensures that there 
won't be any problemi if your anima- 
ti-on ruT>s for fivf sprnnd^ jnd (he pM- 



ticular sequence requires 15 - the soft- 
ware will cycle the animation until the 
ne»t section of the production. 

The frame rate of animations can 
also be defined so that it will fit the 
pace of the production. And if you're 
after a really slick effect, graphics can 
be defined to keep time with the back- 
ing music - as indeed can the entire 
production - so not only will arrima- 
tioni fit perfectly, but v^pes and ladies 
will occur on the beat to give a punchy, 
professional feel. 

Tricky titling 

The neitt track controls ShowMaker's 
internal titling software, and to be hon- 
est this is the only element which 

"'~"T1 






doesn't scone well. The problem here is 
Lhat the designers have bitten off a titllie 
more than the Amiga can chew, by 
designing a tiller which attempts to do 
things which even dedicated titling 
pacicages such as ScaJa and Broadcast 
Titler 2 don't attempt - namefy 
strolling over an animated background. 

This would be a tricky enough 
proposition if the machine had nothing 
else to consider, but when the basic 
problems are compounded with the 
need to sequence genlocks, videos, 
Midi, ASexK and soon NewTek's video 
toaster, not to mention the remaining 
nine internal Annig:a tracks, it's little 
wonder that the scrolling is less than 
silJcy smooth. 

To be fair, for the awerage amateur 
the variety of wipes and fades might 
well make up for the rather stuttered 
scrolling, but for a professionaE, titling 
would have to be done by another 
method, soch as being included within 
animation. 

if you do decide to use the titter 
option there are numerous goodies 
thrown in, such as access to your entire 
font directory plus those present within 
the software itself, all of which can be 
presented in the usual array of bold, 
italic and underlined combinations, 
There's also a range of drop shadow 
effects and numerous outiines, In short 
if yau keep things simple, reasonable 
effects are possible, if perhaps a little 
less than spectacular. 

Special FX 

The next four tracks all control good 
old Paula, the Amiga's internal sound 
chip. Each of the four available chan- 
nels have their own track, onto which 
any IFF sample can be assigned - com- 
plete withi volume definition, optional 
ioop and pitch control. Finally, you can 
decide whether ttK sound shoukj have 
priorily over the music track which may 
be taking up that particular channel at 
the moment of play-back. 

The great thing about these SFX 
tracks is their neKibility. Because sounds 
are assigned to events rather than to 
tracks, the number of samples on a 
track is limited only by available mem- 
ory. Literally hundreds of effects could 
be assigned to the four channels in a 
singk .production.

effects could be gradually faded down

the sound tracks themselves the level

ARexx exploited 

Like many power programs, 
ShowMaker eagerly embraces the 
potential of ARe^x - the inter-program 

communication language which is 
explwiing in the serious Amiga market. 
With the assistance of ARe«K, 

ShowMaker can launch all manner of 
AmJga applications. You can control

ARe)<x has a complete tratck available

command potential, ShowMaker also 
listens to instructions from ARe-x« itself 
and has a few simple designer com- 
mands of its Dwn, with which ARexx 
can issue the orders. 

Genlock option 

GentockJng Amiga output is big busi- 
ness, and as you've probably guessed, 
ShowMaker isn't going to be left out 
when it comes to one of the corner- 
stones of multimedia. To do it, 
ShowMakef employs the SuperCen 
20005. Whether this can be substituted 
for any other genlock is doubtful, but it 
could be worth enquiring with Cold 
Disks before you buy, 

Controllmg the genlock is veiy sim- 
ple, and can be done via a number of 
preiM ined dissolves or clean cuts which 
occur between the Amiga and the 
external video source- The usual overlay 
options are available and, as h the

true we should be seeing this mystical 

beast of the multimedia wortd in about 
18 ntonths. If the transatlantic reports 
are to be believed, it should be well 
worth the watt, 

I'd love to tell you how good the 
combination of ShowMaker and 
Toaster actually is, but unlike many UK 
Amiga mags we adn>it to never having 
used one - afld rf ttie truth were tofd so 
would the others. At present the 
Toaster works solely on NTSC Amigas, 
so we'll just have to wait until it crosses 
the Pond, 



The next Step 

Welt folks, that's about it for the 12 
default internal tracks, but just when 
you thought all was safe, ShowMaker 
adds yet another twist to its already 
well endowed tail by employing numer- 
ous external tracks which are contralled 
via tt»e seri^ port. 

These extra tracks can command 
everything from videos to Laserdiscs, 



and the numb«r of tracks available is 
only limited by your system and of 

course the number of suitable drivers - 
several of which are supplied with the 
ShowMaker software. The Amiga's 
numeric keypad is employed to operate 
the transport on videos and the entire 
system is configured via a fairly stan- 
dard comms requester. 

Interface Info 

As you can imagine, making the most 
of ShowMaker's potential requires a 
very special interface and fortunately 
that's just what Cold Disks have pro- 
vided with one of the best sequericer 
front ends f ve ever had the pleasure to 
use. 

It litenlly couldn't be simpler. Events 
are added to the timeline by simply 
die king-in the appropriate track, tnen 
dragging and releasing when required. 
This process immediately produces the 
appropriate requester which then 
allows you to define wipes, volumes, 
loops and paths, plus a chance to view 
or hear the event prior to insertion in to 
the track. 

This click, drag, release and 
requester approach Is identical 
throughout the timeline and makes 
production a dream. Adfustments to 
the tr^k can he dorte with ease, thanks 
to a variety af editing modes which can 
affect individual tracks or the entire pro- ^ 
ductlon. As you might expect, full cut 
and paste editing is catered for. 

Along with full Timeline editing, 
there are options to work in a variety of 
time formats, These can vary from one 
to sixty second incrementi, or altema- 
tivety as beats, or measures if you prefer 
musical notation. 

The third triumph of the interface is 
its option to wor1( with an internal sync, 
external MTC/5MPTE time code or via a 
Midi clock. 

And finally... 

As far as conclusions are concerned, 
ShowMaker is 3 little difficult, but I'll 

have a go. If you're one of the many on 
a limited budget ShowMaker would 
best be described as a good package 
which is occasionally pnine to the odd 
stutter, if you're looking to combine 
your musical and artistic exp4o<its into a 
complex and impressive presentation, 
it's ideal. 

Having said that, the software's real 
strength is as a cortductor rather than a 
performer. If you have access to vast 
mounds of external equipment, 
ShowMaker is Sure to be a godsend. 
wnth the ability to unify all of their indi- 
vidual strer«gths in one stunning pro- 
duction. As such it comes highly 
recommerided...

I ft tKV«. months most of the con- 
vtTMtoo in the Artriga art world 
ha been dominatjed by the rel?j$« 
el Dpiint4. This isn't surprisi ng as it's as 
hr as m<Mt oi u^ are \k<e]y to asf ire fcr 
both ability and expenditure, but in 
canip«ri»n to TVpaim eve-n the latest 
OpMnt \i na rnore than a plaything, 

On the s^ous side of Amiga art the 
prw have b*ers praying for the release 
^ a 24''bEt pdint package which wi 
match jp to the talents of the ever 
increasing array of 24-biit boards. 

These miracuEojs bits of tisrdvvare 
give access to a palette o( over 
14,000,000 colours md when these 
boards are combined with ray tracers- 
»nd powerful! CAC packaiges, broaidcait 
quality images pouf from ttie Amiga 
equalling anything produced on 




infinitely more expensiwe systems. Such 
Amiga imagery already appears on TV 
and in films, bringing gasps of amaw- 
ment from Amigans who mistakenly 
assume that such work is far beyond 
the ahiliities of their lowly hooie micro, 
How wrong they are,.. 

It's true that to produce such results 
on the Amiga does requires a good d'Sal 
of iniflstmeni^ but irt comparison with 
cQffimercifll alternatJws It's a mere dnip 
In the financidl Dcean. 

Vid^o work 

As you're probab^ aiware, the Amiga is 

the machine tor video work, LiteraJly 
every graphic artist working seriausty in 
the field emplop an Amiga in some 
aspect of his or her work. 

Up urttil now this has mostly meant 
that the Amiga was used pfimarily as a 
rendering engine, producing either stills 
or animatkjn on a 24-bit tioard which 
are then passed on to commendal hard- 
ware such as Quantel's Paintbox - the 
hardware which has long been the 
industry standard in TV and film, 
because of Quanted' s Eong established 



Paul Austin drools over TVpaint, the 
Amiga's first 24-bit paint package 



dominance in the field and a price tag 
that would leave even the largest don- 
key gasprg for breath, it has managed 
to attains the lofty position of artJstic 
demigod in the electronic art world. 
But ii its reputataan deserved? 

For the frightening askirig price of 
Paintbox, you'd think the system would 
do everything but walk the dog. In fact 
it does little more than Dpaint but of 
course all in full 24-htt colour. 

Even with its impressive comrnerciail 
credentials lit certainly won't animate 
and woufd never even consider trying 
its hand at ray tracing. Such pastimes 
are pure^ for the Amiga and programs 
such as ReaBD, Imagirie ^nd Caligari to 
name but a few, all of which have 
built-in 24-bit output and animation 
options as standard. 

With Qua nte I you pay for pure 
image quality and the ability to trans- 
form ideas direct from the artist into 
the 1 6,000,000 colours, and incredible 



resolution that only Quantel - arvj now 
TVpaint - can offer, 

The great news for semi-p<rofession- 

als, professionals and enthusiasts, is that 
the prohibitively expensive Quantel 
dominance is about to end and TVpaint 
is the software to do it, by offering the 
full range of essential pa.int package 
skills - all of which are applied in the 
full glory of 24— bit colour. 

With the average Quantel system 
costing arourid £40,000, TVpaint's pal- 
try asking price of £800 plus VAT is 



An tffHTipSt dF thr <lmiltY t<nfl In action, 

tamplttt with a 1d^ ^reattduilng Cati^aii and 

Imported /rt ft»j»ifl[ran mod*, flafshing tovthrs 

odOietlwSttt JVpaint'i dertilcy tool 



ridiCLlJOuily cheap: Even when the extra 
hardware requirEments trs considered, 
if s still possible to prnsduce 24-bit ani- 
mation and art solely on the Amiga for 
under £5000, and that includes the 
price of an Amiga 2O0O to house all the 
assorted goodies. 

Essential hardware 

To quote £800 for TVpaint is perhaps a 
little misfeading as there are a few other 
odds and ends essential to get tfte sys- 
tem up and running. Perhaps most 
important of all is is TVpainf s insepara- 
ble partner, naimely the Harlequin 
framebuffer. 

Hsrlequin was the first, and is 
arguably still the best framebuffer on 
the market. Even today it is one of the 
few boards to boast any pixel and 
colour,, something which many of the 
cheaper 24-bit boards simply cannot 
compete with. 

Unfortunately the decision-making 
doesn't stop with just the purchasing qf 
a Harlequin, as there's the agonising 
decision of just wfiich Harlequin config- 
uration you require. This decision is 
purely up to yau and will be a matter of 
balancing your needs with your 
finances very careful^. 

The system will wodc perfectly with 
the minimum conTiguration of one arid' 
a half megabytes, but it will mean you 
won't haw a spare screen and pertiaps

mpQftantly thefe will be no undo 

optton- H you're ai clumsy as me this 
on bt i real problem, but if you think 
TVfttioditally and make regular saves, 
mtfot disasters can be avoided. 

To enable bolii Ihe spare screen and 
ll* undo featiiiie, a minimum of three 
megibyles Is required. If you want to 
go the whole Nog and utilise the 
H^riequln's Alpha chiannel you'll ne«d 
the maximum of four megabytei. Who 
nttdi a hoHdiiy, a sociaE life, a 
home,„riot mel 

It you're the owner of an alternative 
board, I'm afraid jrou'll have to wait 
until compatible software is available a J 
TVpaint is Harlequin only, it's a case of 
Upgrade or wait a little longer, 

Aside from the Harlequin, another 
essentijil add-on is a 63030 accelerator, 
preferably fitted with an FPU or maths 
co-processor. Between two and four 
megabytes of JZ-bit memory wouldn't 
do any hanm, but It isn't essential. 

Obviously those iucky souls blessed 
with a 30DO can skip this bit and spend 
the money on surgery to make their 
smug smiles even more permanent 
than they already are. 

Second mortgage 

Right about now you'll probably be 
thinking sbout a s^ond mortgage, a 
bank |ob, or perhaps what's on the 
nejit page, but remember we're taking 
about imagery that George Lucas, 
Steven Spielberg and the average 
advertising executive would kill for, SO 
keep that in mind before you turn to 
the games section and the ikiller nutter 
ninja turtles. 

Next on the shopping list comes a 
hard drive. This i^n't stiktly an essential 
but with even small flies running to 
over lOOK a floppy wouldn't be too 



Imagery^ that 
Steven Spielburg 
would kill for tt

smart. About 4'Ci meg would be a sensi- 
ble amount but as someone once said 
the bigger the better, hiarr, fnarr... 

The last in the line of add-ons is an 
extra monitor, preferably a multisync or 
VCA^ which would of course require a 
flicker fixer if you're working on a 2000, 
If you're a 3000 owner you could 
alwayf go for a bit more surgery or per- 
haps start saving for a 6^040 upgrade, 

Theoreticatly it should be possible to 
usfl the CVBS output from the Amiga 
and put that into the CVBS an the 
nnonitor thereby freeing the main RGB 
for the Output from the Harlequin, 

Switching between the Harlequin 
image and the workbench screen 
would then just be a matter of selecting 
the Input on the monitor. Un- 
fortunately when this was tried with a 
1084 monitor the CVBS input was com- 
pletely out of sync and unusable. 

It may well be possible to share 
inputs on another type of med-res 
monitor, but to be honest this would 
only be a temporary measure as the 
System really needs a hl-res monitof to 
be at its best. Apart from the lower

Image quality there's also the added 
diiadvantage of image loss. 

for example if you're working with a 
hi-res Harlequin ou^ut of 310,1(576, a 
standard Amiga monitor simply doesn't 
have the nurfiber of pi:<:els available ta 
display the entire page, so SQOner or 
later a hi-res monitor woyld be required 
for any serious use. 

Another optional element would be 
one or mare of the many i'^bJt com- 
patible ray tracers and CAD packages, 
the likes of which where mentioned 
earlier and described In the inmge info 
bones throughout the article. 

Interface information 

Once you've made the appropriate 

investment, the next task is to Install 
the software. This is done automatitcally 
and alt that's required Is the partition 
name. The only other essential is the 
dongle which must be present in the 
parallel port before boot up. With an 
asklr^ price of £800 plus VAT, It's not 
entirely Surprising that the French 
authors Tecsoft take the odd precaution 
against piracy. 

Once the software is installed and 
the dongle inserted, the program 
defaults to a opening screen which 
allows you to select one of the three 
available resolutions and whether or 
not you require the Undo or Function 
options. 

The final choice is the whether you 
require the present screen on the frame 
buffer to be retained. This is a. useful 
function if you want to touch up your 
latest ray tracing before committing it 
to digital postedty. 

When your selection is complete, the 
Harlequin screen clears and redisplays 
complete with the TVpaint selection 
panel. Unlike Dpaint, all the available 
options are accessed through this single

p»tcd uvcr tl*e new famMlar 

density gradutUiXi 

requester which operates with a tomW- 
nation of right and left mouse clicks, in 
a similar manner to that of Dpaint's 
control panel. 

One of the many examples of the 
double button system Is the Density 
control which can be invoked by a sin- 
gle left mouse click or altered with the 
right. As soon as the right mouse is 
selected the density requester appears 
and can be redesigned with any of the 
many presets, or altered manually with 
the mouse. 

Using the software is simplicity itself 
and will take the average [)paint fan a 
matter of minutes to come to terms 
with. The only real difference between 
the two is TVpaint's tack gf animation 
and, of course, the absence of any 
pull-downs. 

Power features 

One of the first points rafsed in the 
excellent accompanying manual is the 
design teams' approach to the software 

itself. Rather than being a techno- 
junkles nirvana complete with all man- 
ner of scripts and programming 
protocols, the program Is very simple. 
The technology trap is easy to fall into 
when designing power programs, but 
thankfully this particular pitfall has been 
avoided. 

One of the first examples of this user 
friendly approach is the fickaling control 
panel vvhich can be moved and placed 
anywhere onscreen, oniy changing 
position at your command. This also 
applies to alt pf tfie sub-menus, and as 
a result the flow of work isn't inter- 
rupted by annoying permanent 
requesters which need to be removed 
Itiom the keybchard. 

The Undo function, which is available 
with the larger Harlequin configura- 
tions, doesn't stop with a simple erase 
or replace but can be set up with 
parameters which can be activated 
from the opening format screen or the 
system requester on the main control 
panel. 

The spare screen option has obvious 
advantages as any Dpaint fan wilf tell 
you but an added bonus is PVpaint's 
Transparency option whkh allows ^e 
spare screen to be miKed vvith the fore- 
ground of the present screen. Some *"

and fptrlrvm wrrtrofe, olhnvj'ng xtrU (a the fun patttte ofJi.oan^aOa iolmin 

other Dpaint-like options ate the sepa- 
rate button/separate colour dfition lor 
tlie mouse and the usual variety of 
brush opti&ni which include lasso poly- 
gon and rectangular brush selectJon - 
all of which can be rotated and re-4i»d 
in the classic paint package manner, 

As well as the invaluable Density 
control, which wai mentioned eariiefj 
the system alio boasts a range mode 
which can be defined over either the 
entire palette or [ust a specified range. 
As you can probably see from the 
screenshots, when the range option is 
tombined with the airbrush effect the 
true power of 24-bit starts to appear, 
as the entire spectrum scrolls through a 

single mouse stroke. 
It is perhaps the aiftrush that best 

shows the pctwer of the Harlequin and 
TVpaint combination. On more than 

one occasion I found myseit trying to 

remove dust from the mortitor which in 

fact were merely faint traces of paint 

left by a wayward manoeuvre with the 

mouse, To be honest it toot ail my 

meagre mental powers to drag myself 

aiway and try out some of the other <ea- 

turti, 

Cerhaps the most confusing part of 

using s 16,000,000 colour palette is 

how e)uictfy it can be accessed without 

the use of a palette rfisplaying every 

colour. As you can imagine, a requester 

showing all the colours would be about 

50 feet long and almost impossible to 

apply 

To combat this a whole range of 

palettes can be cycled Itirough snsi if a 

specific colour can't be found, individ- 
ual colours can be edited by either their 

RGB or CMY colours, if that's still rot 

enough, they can be selected direct 

from two spectrum disb at the bottom 

of the- requester. 

ir that's St I El not enough, various 

colours can be blended in the mixer - 

an option which aMows individual 

colours to be sprayed on top of each 

othEf and mixed manually. 
The last of the colour controls is a 

Gamma option which allows you to 

adjust the Gamma curve on either the 

Entire image or combinations or the 

RCS elements. This can be particularly 

uieful if you want to lift the colour bal- 
ance within an image, but saving out 



mMPur/NG 



beforehand is an essential as sometimes 
it can do a littie more harm than good. 

Apart from the power of thfl paint 
package itself, the other essential of any 
24-bit package is its compatibility with 
the myriad of graphic fi(e formats. 
Fortunately foe TVpaint, ail of the essen- 
tiais are ready and waiting with full sup- 
port for 24-bit IFF, TCA, Hendition and 
Deep nrtodes, so no matter what output 
you and your ray tracer prefetj, TVpaint 
should be more than happy to import 
your latest creation. 

The final element of the TVpaint 
situation is its ability to multitask with 
perfectiion, allowing you to jump 
between the paint package and any 
other Amiga application which you may 
wish to employ. 

When you've finally decided on the 
colour compoiitton and loaded any rel- 
evant fifes, the real work can start. This 
is where the now almost mandatory 



keyboard short cuts come irtto their 

own, making evierythif>g from selecting 
an airbrush to specifying magriificatlHjn 
as simple as a single keystroke. As a 
resuH. commercial artists shouid tre able 
to use their valuable time to the full and 
leap from one topi to the ne?(t with 
ease, pausing only to cash a cheque 
and send an invoice. 

Artistic opinions 

As you're no doubt aware I'mi not 
exactly disappointed, as indeed t didn't 

expect to be for a package that retails 
at just under a £1,000 minus the essen- 
tial hardware. 

Having said that, and considering 
the alternatives which approach over 
50 times the price for what is essentiatty 
the same system, TVpaint has to be 
good value. 

My only real complaint is the soft- 



to fhe flfffiun*! mri a iun bvrA fHtdtti i*lrit iVh demttf tool 



ware's tendency to crash occasionally, 
which I must admit is infuriating, espe- 
cially if you're in the final throes of your 
piese de ia fesiitancs. 

To be fair to the software, it's a 
strong possibility that the fault lies with 
nrty rather elderly 2000 rather than the 
software itself. 

To clarify the crashing problem i 
took some advice from Martin Lowe at 
ASC, who assurwi me that such prob- 
lems are unheard of north of the bor- 
der, and must be either the fault ot my 
elderiy companion or perhaps due to 
TVpaint's need for a rather a weighty 
amount of continuous menwiy on the 
parent machine. 

On the whole the complete package 
comprising the Harlequin, a 68030 and 
TVpaint Is quite simpJy incredible, and 
Is sure to help in the production art that 
only Quantel's paintbo* can compete 
with. And all for just a 
fraction of the price...

If you fancy yourself as something 
o.f a WQL Id-be Speilberg, thefi yw 
may well be jurfKised to (earn ihst 
you already own ons of Ihe mait pow- 
ertui video devices ever developed. 
With little more tfian your Amiga, a 
video fpcorder and a device tallied a 
genlock, you too could crsate video 
ettecti that would have lefl BBC video 
engineer! dumbitmck little more than a 
few years ago- 

The Icey to jll this power \i the gen- 
lock, a sophisticated Sittte device thaL 
has revolutionised low cost video pro- 
duction on the Amiga, Gen(ock.s are 
avsiiaMe for other machinei, but the 
Amiga's obvioui power has allowed 
deveEopers to produce profeiiional 
quality genlocks at a fraction of the 
cost. 

Atari may have coined the phrase, 
but the Amiga is still the only machifie 
that can If jly claim to offer "powder 
without Che price" where video is con- 
cerned, fou'll find the Amiga being 
used in conjonction with pfotessional 
video decki, video processors, chro- 



makeyj and paintbox syitems within 
man/ prafeiiional pasi-productinn 
houses. Even on the television you'll 
find the Amiga's talents at work - check 
out the ITV Chart 5how, Jor example. 

So what is a genioiik? Well, put sim- 
ply, it's a device whsch allows you to 
combine the video output from your 
Amiga with the output from a video 
recorder or camcorder. 

Speciatiit circuitry* within the genlock 
allows the background colour of the 
Arniga video signal to be replaced with 
the video output Irom jmur VCR. This 
process allows you to overlay titiei onto 
your home videos and a lot more 
besides. 

Choosing a genlock is a complicatsd 
process which must not be entefed into 
lightly. If you do, you could well end up 
with a genlock that is quite unsuitable 
for your particular application - worse 
still, you could wasle a Sol of your hard 
earned money. So, befoTe you wite out 
that cheque, read our mega round up 
of the current stale of the art in Amiga 
genlocks.

nectars and a 23-pin connector to connect the thing lo the 
Amiga>. Surprisingly it doesn't hwe an RC8 pais-through, 
which really is a siJIy omiaion. I reatly cannot undefstand how 
hardware manutdctufefs eouicf poisibly 
be unaware of the importance 
of RGB pass-through. 

The genlock has three 
modes of operation - Video 
only, Amiga only and Mix. Video 
only displays the incoming com- 
posite signal, Arnica only displays 
ihe Amiga image, and min dis- i 
. ■ .'.'i the two together. Like most 
budget qenloc ks, MimCen doesn't 
allow you lo tontfol which colotir 
raster ii used (or keying, » you're 
restricted to |ust the background

colour. This tsn't too much ot a probJem really, as most home 
users wilt probably have no need to alter the keying colour. 

MiniGen doesn't come with any software at all which is ytljjjk 
another !jig disdppointrrvent. tvlost genlocks at least give you a 
couple ot test irnages - scwrie even con>e with compfete pack- 
ages - but you're on your own here folks! As It is, a good v»deo 
titling package should also be on your sfjopping list 

The overall image quality at fvliniCen wai thought to be 
pcelty good a few years back, but it has aged terribly. Some 
screens sufler terribly from colour bleeding and the genlock 
occasionally ieems to lose sync even when using a good clean 
scHjrce signal. That said, f^iniGen isn't 
that t3*d - just ash tfie thousands of 
satisfied users across the countryf 

WiniCen was a revolutionary 

piece of kit when it was released a 

few yea« back, but it no longer cuts 

it It will do the job, but this is 

about as far as ttiings go. ff you're 

after a budget genlock, then the 

Roctec unit is definitely a better

During it's tew months an the market, 
tt,eRocCen has become the choice for 
video enthusiasts ona budget, n Ma 
number of flaws, but its obvious talents 
.■,(,re than make up for these, 

The Roctec RC5MC comes to you 
n a rather flat little box sporting more 

knobs and whistles than ^ fairground 
organ. U connects to the Amiga via a 
10^ cable with tt^e video source itsell 

being ted in Ihrough

Like MiniCen, 
the RocCen 

doesn't have an 
flCB pass-through 

either, which is such 

a stiame for a gen^ 

lock with such a 

high specification. 

Rumour hai il thai 

Roctec are planning 

to correct this, but 

nothing more has 

been heard from the 

company since the 

qenlock's release. 

The R&cGen too can be operated m 

three modes -Amiga only, Video only 
and MiK - but it goes further than 
both t^e Rendale uftit o' MmrGen 
thanks to its powerful fade and bis- 
solve controis which are built m to the 
genlock as standard. These two modes 

allow you to fade in and out the Amiga 



graphics and lade between Amiga 
graphics only and video only. This fea- 
ture alone makes ttie RocGen a very 

good bet, . 

The RocGen does come with its 
own software but - lo be frank - rt's 
not worth tbe disk thai holds it. 
There's the usual selection of test 
images plus a very naff video titling 
package that looks 
as if it was written 
in AmigaBasic. If 
you've got any ^ 
sense, some j 

decent nfldeo soft- 
ware should be 
bought immedi- 
ately. 

I must admit 
that despite it 
flaws, I lil(e the 
RoeCen. U's 
shame that i 
doesn't tiavl 
an HGB pass

then an upgraded RocCen sf^ould 
eventually be made available (don I 
hold VOL" breath ihough*), for home 
video enthusiasts who don't need lots 
(,f t^rKy features, the Roctec ftG300 is 
the genlock to be seen using.

One vtfy nice feature of the A8fl02 ii

For the serious video enthusiast... 





endale A8802 S-VHS 

£599.99 ^MarcamTel; 081-941 6117 
The follow up to the eldssic Afl802 is the Super-VHS MMl, a genlock that offers a 
lot more than Just Super-VHS compatibility. Coming in at just under £600, it offers 
good value too 
! Like moil Super-VHS genlocks, the Rendale doesn't just support S-VHS. If you 
: (eel like taking th^e pJuftg^ Straight away*but haven't got acc«s to S-VHS declta 
then the unit can sliil be used with a composite vidfio signal by simply (Ikking a 
switch on the back of the unit. Obviously you woo'l get the same inr^ge qualiljL 
', but you still get alt the extra features that the S-VHS A8B02 has to offer. fl 

' Probably the most striking d iff f rente between the normal ASSM and ttie S- 
' VHS A8602 is the induiion of a bulky but nicely presented effects control boK that 
^ is about three times the size of the geni-ock itself. All connections are made 
through this box, with a. simple lead connecting all this video wizardry to the 
I actual genlock unit, This fader bojc must be brought acound from Ih'e back of ] 
I Amiga to sit next to your Amiga keyboard, allowing easy access to ita contrds, 
Thanks to that ejdra box. Lhe M&Qi fully supports the usual crossfading an 
fading to black that is common with genlocks of I his pnce. However, it also Eud 
ports a number of powerful wip^s ttiat will allow you to create some quite stu 
1 ning effects within your video productions. 

Using a combination of the tor^lrois available, it's possible to create left, righ^ 
[ up, down, top left, bottom right, middle of the screen wipes and i lot more 
' besides. Clever use of these wipe effects can produce some very nice effects, j| 
As you'd expect from a Rendale genlock, the quality of the genlocked signal W 
, very good indeed- Once again, it's not quite up to broadcast quality Sfwc, but it's 
more thari ^ood enough for semi-professional purposes, When you alio eoinsie 
its relatively low price, the Super-VHS Rendale is a very good bet indeed, 





maiy not have heard of GST, but 
the/re a big name within the ST mar- 
ket. Indeed, they were one of the first 
companies tq produce a workable 
genlock fof the ST, a machine that 
^ was never reaify that good at video 
work. Now they've started producing 
their wares for the Amiga, but the 

(competition is somewhat tougher. 
Like all CST's products, the GST 
Ck3fd lives inside a bfrllianl colour co- 
Oifdinated black box about the size of 
a good thick hardback book. It fully 
supports both Super-VHS and com'- 
posite signals,, so it's not let down in 
this department On the front of the 
genlock are a coupfe of controller 
knobs which allow yoM to alter the 
contrast, luminarkce and colour of the 
incoming signal. Very few genlocks 
seem to offer these controls, so this is 
definite^ one up for the CST Cold. 

The documentation which comes 

with tlw GST Cold is pretty good.., if 

you can read french, that is. Perhaps 

rfm Just being picky, but it would havf 



been nice to have had an fjiglisd 
manuaf. My f rench is pretty appalling, 
10 getting to know the GST Gold was 
something of a struggle to say the 
least. So if you order a GST, make sure 
that you insist on an Engfish manual, 

One very nice feature of the C5T is 
its built in RGB splitter, which is not 
ittuaJly that useful for desktop video, 
but is a real boon if you own a video 
digitiser. So, if you also awf> a digitiser 
Ifke DigFVi.ew or fiombo's Vidi-Amiga, 
you can use the genlock to separate a 
composite or S-VHS signal Into its 
component red, green and blue sig- 
nals. It's reafly nothing more than a 
gimmick, biit it's handy nonetheless. 

The genlock itself seems pretty 
basic, although the image quality is 
very good indeed. Surprisingly, it 
doesn't offer any form of wipes or 
fades, which is definitely not going to 
help It, especially now that budget 
units like the RocCen offers these for 
consrderabfy less money. In all, you're 
probably better off vMth the flendale.

If you want to gel the beit from your new acquisition, then foUow these handy hmts: 

1 . When overlaying graphics, alwayi biy to use the best possible quality comp&iite video sounce. Try to avoid using s«ond generatior videotape. If you do, you may fird 
that the im^ge will break up terribly. 

2. For more professional worti, avoid uting low resolutidn compoiite video decks, If you can affwd it, go fof Super-VHS or even Hi-8. 

3. Avoid highly sacurated images- these can cause terrible amounts of colour bleeding, 

4. Use decent quality video tables, preferably caWes d»igred specffically for video signals. These shielded cables cut down signal noise and interferenice to a rninimuTTi. 

5- If you are using standard composJte VHS, then it's well worth investing in a PAL encoder - a device which gives better image quality wtien the genlocked signal is laid 
down on to videotape. 

6. Keep your video graphici; hi simple ai possible - the bolder the image, the clearer it will be when recorded onto videotape. 

7. Titles loot 3 lot cleairer and mare nsadabie it you add a black outline around them. This also cuts down colour bleeding. 

5. A good investmefit is a sound mixer. This will allow you mix the sound from the original vidratape with a commentary and possibly even a baching ttack. 



The professional choice... 



fvloit of the genlocks featured would be 
fine for jedous video appticationSj but 
ivefi these aren't quite up to the task of 
handling broadcast qual:ity video like 
that re<quired by video post-production 
houses. 

Thankfuf^y, Amiga developers have 
got this covered too. It's beyond the 
scope of this article to mention them in 
any gr?at detail, but here's a quick njn 
down of some of the more common 
professiDnal units available, 

C2 VCl - The big brother of both C2's 
VCl and VC2 is the VC3, a broadcast 
quality genlock that is selling like hot 
cakes at the moment, The reason (or 
this is simple - the VC3 is the only 
Amiga genlock that supports VCrCB 
CYUV) output. H you don't know what it 
is, then chances are that you don't 
need it! 

Maiden - Lfke most professional gen- 



locks, MawCen comes to you in l^in, 
lU rack-mount format, so it can be 

installed easily and securely within a 
professional video environment. It sup- 
ports Super-VHS and PAL composite 
with full bro^cast quality output. 

Nerikk ImageMaster - -Offering basi- 
cally the same features as the MaxiCen 
genlock is the Neniki rarsge of genlocks. 
These too come in rack-mount format 
and offer the usual selection of wipes 
and fades with broadcast quality output 
in PAL, composite and Super-VHS for- 
mats. 

Rendflfe A8$0& - Rendale's flagship 
genlock Is the AB806, a very nice little 
number Ihdt also comes in ratk-nfwunt 
format. It too offers broadcast quality 
output with the usual selection of wipes 
and fades. It's also dirt cheap - at just 
under £900, it represents very good 
value for money.

said thai the Super-VHS fiendwToh 
also do this. The key register is 
changed by setting a seriei of dip 
switches at the back of the genlock, 
so It's worth Iwving a good ball-point 
pen on hand to do this. 

Unique to the VC2 is a set of 20 
wipe functions which will allow you 
to add a bit of dais to your video, 
productions. 

These wipes allow you to vH 
either the Amiga or background 
video through ooe of 20 variable 
siied and shaped paUerns. These 
patterns fnclude circles, rectangles 
md diagonals. These ettects can be 
positioned anywhere on the screen 
ihanltj to a joystick control built m to 
the console 

Overail, the VC2 is a powerful and 
^■ery capable gefilocking system that, 
whilst iiot bemg broadcast quality, Is 
suitable tor most semi-professional 
vfdeo applications. 

In fact, the only thing I could find 
to complain about is the price - at 
just over £t 100, it is rather pricey, 
especially when you compare it to 
theRendaie, 

There's no doubting its obviou 
power, but is it really worth the fiA

A really impressive selection of pict jrei came 
in this [Thonth, in this lot shpuld t^he sorne 
bedting, 
First of all we have two pictures from s cmystery 
contributor known only a Dope loc. The two pic- 
tures are enticed "Blue Woon" and "Mountains", for 
obvkius r€aso<ni. 

Tony Dorinelly in Northern Ireland has sent us the 
extdlent "Snake" picture and also a distinctly odd 
Creation called "Toi Doi", 

Winner this mmith though, and deservedly so, h 
Jared Derrett. Hii two pictures, *Assass«n" and 
"btecutioner" are so good that some people actually 
thought they were screeniiioti from a game ratiier 
tlHsn Gallery sobmissjoms. 

He'll be hearing the creak of the postman's kn€«s 
BhMMom *^ ^^ stnjggles with a copy of Deluxe Paint IV and a 
glossy, framed copy of the "Aisassin" picture ^1 the 
way to Eisex. The lucky wee scamp. 

Can yoL top that? Perhaps you've got s&me old digi- 
tal doodles knocking around at home. If so, stitk 
them on i disk and send 'em In to us at; 

The Galleiy, Amiga Computing, Europa House, 
Addngton Park, Macclesfiekl 5K1 4NP 

You too couJd grace these hallowed pages and earn 
yourself the goads. Please remember to include 
details af how jrou created your picture^], plus your 
name, address, telephone number and wtiat fomiat 
the picture(s) are \n. Good luck! 

By the way, apparently there's been a delay in 
sending out some of the glossy pitturei, so if you're 
a pas^t winner who .hasn't got theirs yet, then give us; 
a bdl on (0625] B78BS8 and we'EI sort it out far you.

|=oJlowing the highly-acclaimed TV Sp^wts Foot-

moves away from liie American theme and onto 
a more gfobaf sport: ttie bloodthirsty, money- 
grabbing wofld of pf ofessional tjowng. 

As well as the high quality graphics and 
gamepiay that Cinemaware ha^/e made their 
own icreep, crawll Che game will also include d 
full manapement section where you can shape 
She careers of talented boxers, force tiie less taJ-

l(}way thnough tfie 2 \ st 
century, man has finsify 
majcer'Sd the technology 
fiequired for travel to, and colonisation 
of, distant planets. The firit starshrp, 
Daedalus I, set off in the year Z052 
heading faf 'ilV'dtf 359, a smaH red star 
sotThe B.I yeans away from Earth. 

As (Jie sftentios arrived some gefigf- 
ationi later they discoverecf that the 
dual star solar system was entirely 
devoid of planets. Thefe was nO' mor^ 
in that solar system tinan a large num- 
bei" 0^ dJtergtd tnelts. On closet inspec- 
tion it appeared that amoivg Ihe aster- 
oids there flew ttmusands of tiny craft 
automatkally contfolted niJning vessels. 
It seems the previous cctlanijtj h^s 
destroyed alf the planets so that Uiey 
could mine more efficiently. 



Da'edalus I headed for the only 
lump of rock bicpger thart an astefokf 
t3ut smaller than a planet, a moon ttiat 
no fonger iiad a planet to ort)it, This 
moon, christened Frorttier Al^fa, was 
inhabited by a race of independer>t, 
caprtalist and unscrupulous robots and 
their creators the IJemusians. The 
l^emusians were small byg-eyed 



humanolds who took a much Im 

active role in the co'ony than the 
Robofomis. 

The Earth starship was soon cap- 
tured by the Remusians, who erttlaved 
the human habitants. Some of them 
escaped capture however, and estab- 
lished a small colony of their awn. 
They set you up as a tradei, with the 
(jllimatte aim of making enough profit 
to be able to buy the whoJe colony 
snd become supreme ieader, thereby 
being abl'e to free the enslaved 
hurtians. 

This 3D vector graphics-based 
games combines viofence and trading 
on a pianefs suriace, m the classic for- 
mula that W3S pioneered by B&t£ in 
deep space. In Moorrfall though, ttte 
gameplay is more regimented than ttie 
random nature of other games. 

Ten missions lie in wait for you, ten 
objective! that must be completed 
very successltilly so that the majdrrmm 
gain Is made fi'om each, whether It be 
a reward for -capturing am outlaw, or

Pockets, eh? What brcwmin 
marveiJuus ifttfe fellas they sre, 
Why, if it weren't For pocketi 
then the faixK of ou^ HXkty wouM faN 
to pieces, Karigaroos would be pretty 
useFeis wrthout pockets, and imak^t 
ptayei'5 would be scuppered as well'. 
Just imagine; a wortd without leangs- 
roffi or inaafcer. 

Oh, Not so bad is it? So pocketi 
aren't f eally thar wonderful are Uiey? Ip 
fact they're not worth bothefing wlBh 
ar all. So, efiough banter, let's get on 
and check out [he tdtest Brtmap onier- 
mg. 

ft would appear that I'm not the onfy 
perion to have problemi of a pocket 
nature. The BiBmap Kid is having trouser 
receptacle bothers as well. Vou see. 
Bitty has been blessed with, yes you 
guessed it, Magjc PoOtets, 

Just what's magic about them? Well, 
diey're big. Vay CjJg, Magically big in 
Hact, Just fJke the TarcfJs, the Kid's pock- 
ets are a tot bigger on the inside than 
they would at first appear, 

As well as having poc^eti Ifiat def^ 
the laws of physics, they alio hawe ^n 
' egualiy spooky ability to provide the Kid 
with whatever objects he desires. Foj 
e;<3ripie, rf he's lounging \n the sun 
and he feeJs a tad thirsljH. he pJunges 
hFE hand into hfs podiet and produces a 
refreshing, cool can of Fizq/ Trendy Pop 
drin*,. Great, eh7 

Of course, there's a downstde to all 
this pantaloon Japeiy. ft would appear 



finds hiffisdf in a world totally u^". 
any he has ever known. A vwiric 
la ted by strange b^Sits and t 
landimiarfc, 

It's Ashton under Lyne on a S.- 
nightl Except it's not, it's four le, 
scrolling platform action pJayed over 
separate sub-jectmni, with one '^ 
located on each tewl, And so we c&- 
to The Game. 

Yes, it's a Bitrraap Brothers corx 
tion, and yes ifs flaminig man^illous ■ 
with Gods, the bruvs have taken 
standard platform formula and atiti-. 
littfe twist to mate it a completely : " 
ent game from every other ptatfom^' 

A lot of the innovations founs 
God J crop up here too, albeit ifs ( 
slightly tjigger way, but we'll get to 
latef . Ftfjt of all, brfore we get >r\i. •• I 
the compiitated bits, let's take a sht,*? 
at how the game looks as a platforr^ 

The sfreen layoyt will be fami.' ■ 
anyone who's played a platform 5 ■ "■ 
- and let's face it, that's prac^ii j 
everyone. You have the main ch,i m . ; 
complete with a springy wee jurr; 
some platforrtii to jump on to, so 
bogeymen to try and stop him, and ( 
exit at the end of the Jevef. 

Tfiat's wfwre the simyiaities end. 
Bitm^ Kid can fight back with a ram* 
of weapons from his infamoos packer. 
On level one. tie fires whirtwinds, le.^

that the KkJ has accidentally lost four of 
hrs favourite toys dans la poclie and 
now he wants them back. And what 
better way to do this than to whip a 
bJadt hole out of his kecks and leap rn 
after his betoved pfaytJiings? 

WeW, he caufd just pop down to Toys 
R Us and buy some new ones. No? 
Please yourselves. Once inside his

btock/snowtsall whidi will trap the n* 
tiest Rainbow fslancfs-style. 

These exira strength power up^ ■ 
hawe a second purpose, depending i 
which level you are on. for instance, c' 
level one the whirlwinds can be used : 
ffing the Kid ail over the screen, afbiv 
ing him to reach higher platforms, - 
sphniiling of tactical planning will t:- 
reqifired to puz7ie your way out of cf 
tain situations, so don't disengage yo- 
bram when ycm pidt up ihe jtj^ct. 

The iub-ieueis within each main o^^- 
lire designed so that no two Jevefs w 
play alike. Some require you to navigdV: 
mares of interlinked platforms, othe' 
demand quick reflexes, and others cr 
upon puzzle solving skills. 

At the end oi each main levef, thf- 
is a bonus one which involvei using tr-. 
toy you retrieved fi'om that fevel in son- 
sort of rest. These range from the rev- 
tively normal, such as a bike race, to ct- 
positively bizarre: try a bojting matc* 
with a gonila.

Spicy as these ftics they put «i pizzas to

it. The music is provided by that stomin'

Perhaps if s a tilt of a sharr)e ttiat just 
as the game was being campleted, Ms 
Boo got booed off stage for miming, but 
that's the wsy the cookie crumbles. 
Whether or rmt you're a Boo fan, the

them are really vicrous and wilf attack 
from off screen and follow yoit every- 
where you go. 

Some of the tjaddies are wea* and 
cant get over the otiitscjes in your way. 
and some are even better at jumping 
than you and can scafe even the most 
daunting wallj. This sjratem means that 
you'll never be abfe to waltz through 
PtclietJ jiist tjecause you know when to 
wpect the enemy. Pretty damn clevef, 
huh? 

.AntHher new EBtmap invention is the 
gradeable power-up. By killing na^es 
you can tfecrde what power-ups you get 
when you trap a nas^. The more nasties 
you kJN, the Dettet the power-up when 
you trap and burst your next foe. Cun- 
ning or what? This isn't just a gunmiek 
either, as fater levels require you to plan 
f arefijJIy what power-ups you'll use afld 
when " rf you're to stan<J a ca.t in hefl's

That, rn the space ailowed, is as 
much of the game as I can tell you 
about. Suffice it to say ttiat I didn't have 
room to tell yoy about ihe iwret rooms 
full of bonuses, the fun reward bits 
when you're totally invincible and can 
JuJt teap about killing things, the ability

etro City has gone a hit 

downhill. Only a bit, 

mmd you, it used to b& 

plagued l>y crime and corruption. 
TTiose fiMihardy jouli who dared w^fit 
the streets at night got muggedr then 
the muggers ggt rotibeil, then the rob- 
bers got beaten up, and so it i^ent on. 

Decent folk moved away, and cprrie 
{0 thmk of it, ihe irtdMertt folk rmved 
dway aj wefl. Nope, Metro Crty really 
was 3 pretty nasty place to he. 

Then Dhe Mad Gear Garig aiTived... 

Cursed with the most pathetic gang 
name since Tlie Jets" m West Sjde Stcsy 
they vented their r^ge againit the parai- 
yjed tity. They terrified people with 
their close harmony fenditioni of 
L&onarc) Bernstein songi and bribed the 
mayor to sii\<M/ them to carry OMt their 
nefarious deeds without recriminaticifl. 

let's fiice it they took the place over. 
Then the mayor myjterously vanished, 
and the city lodked fbf a new hero to 
rid tiiem of the Mad Gt!\ti. This hero 
came in the imposing shape of Mik.e 
Haggar. 

Haggar, Cfuite handily, ihappened to 
be an ex-wresEler and street fighter fas 
weil as having <i wonderful singing 
voice and a penchant for Shakespeare- 
an verse). 

He refused to t»w do^^r* to the Mad 
Gears' offefi of bribery and corruption, 
sfl they kidnapped his lovely daughter, 
Jessica. 

"What a di-ag", thinks Hjggar, ■'Still, 
sounds liie an excuse to waik the 



streets and kick the hell out of everyone 
I meet.' And that's exattfy wh^t he 
cfoes. 

Meanwhile, ov«r in the gym, Guy 
and Cody are discussing the pros and 
cons of having immensety stereotyped 
butdi yankee names when the phpr>e 
rings. "Jeisicfs b&en kidnapped," says 
Cody in a blindmg ftash of lateral think- 
ing, "My sweetheart since childhood," 
he adds to clarily what little plot there 
ij. 'Uie's ffjy friend too," pipes up Cuy, 
feeHinig a little left oui, 'cos he's fancied 
Jesspca for ages and only ever Jcissed her 
once [when she was dmnK at the annu- 
al Street Fighters Xmas Ball). 

By a blinding stroke of 
iuck, Guy and Cody are 
more than a little adept at the ■-■'- 
old martial arts, Ves, Guy and 
Cckdy just happen to he a cou-

■ ou mdy not have noticed, 

Jjut RobFn Hood is pretty hot 
property these d^ys. A Few 
yea^Tigo he was just a btoke wfw ware 
green kg vv^rmcrs and a stupd hat in 
some distant aqe, refnemljered only in 
songs sung by bearded men in reaJ ale 
pubs with Arerr sweaters and fisher- 
men s' snuKks. then juddenly he was 
transforrned overnigtit into sn fntema- 
tional ftim star and aJi round ceieb'. 

M i tan ay is that \t'i a good tfiing 
that Robin H«d tooked IrJte Kawin Cost- 
nef, or they'd have had to get someone 
else for the film, and (hen where wouW 
he be? 

Needfess to say, ihij gafne has noth- 
ing to do with 'Prince of Thieves', 
although there a a competitron to win 
the video included witfi the game, but o 
instead based on the OWe English leg- 
erMls that spawned the ofiginaf Robyn o' 
tfif Hoode. So don't expect lo find Hol- 
iywood styie stunts ^nd chases, like the 
filrr. Thars not to say that the game is 
without action, but it's action of a more 
sedate kind. 

The game plates you In the liightly 
sweaty tunic of Monsieur Hood, and 
asKs that you merely efevate him to fevd 
of iriterrtationaJ Folk Hero, Ho ho ho, 
TTial should be easy, thought I, r'N just 
clobber some Normans, snog Marian 
ancf i>e home in time for a slap-up meal 
of dead stag. Oh boy, was I wrong. Let's 
tafce my first game as an example. 

I started off happily enough, sat in 
my eaitte having a good old knees up 
with the Sherwood Fosse. Then the 
Sheriff of l^ottingham booted ms out 
and made me an outlaw, i hung around 
for a bit thinking it might b* some mas- 
siv? fTtedieval Jeremy fiesdfe type prank, 
but twas not. 

So, theie I wais. An outlaw. So I shot 
a few arroiws around, got mto a fight 
witfi a soldier and died. Not rea% 9n 
auspicious itart few th« Champion of th« 
Oppressed, eh? What had gone wrqng? 

IVty first impressions of Robin Hootf 
were look's lifce loads of fur>, but what 
the hell am I supposed to do7'. The

ways to end the game, sonw are fail- 
ures, others are mirror successes, or you 
(ould go the whole hog and kill the 
Sheriff, get the girl and itive the world. 

My first few endings were of the 
"complete and utter fejiune'' ti^pe, with 
the peasants sntggering at me and caB- 
rng me nainei. After a bit Of esperimen- 
tatson though, I startled to get the hang 
of It. I met Maid Marian (and even marv 
aged to snog her], I joined forces with 
■*ili Scarlet and even tilled the Sheriff 
with a lucliy arrow. Then f jot beaters 
up by loads of soJdiers and cfied. But it 
was too late, I was hooted. 

Control of fiobin is carried out via 
mous& artd icons, in a manner similar to 
PowerMonger. l^ou select the action 
you want and then click on the person 
or object you wish to art upon. It's a 
tried' and tsted formula, and it worts 
quite weJI. There are times, fvowever. 
when it can cause nroutiJe. For instance,

you have to click on two icons to nin 
away from a soldier when he takes you 
prisoner, amd by the time you've done 
that you could wdl be dead, Tfrere's 
also a rather odd feature that means 
that sometimes Robin ignores what 
you ask him to do and does what he 
wants instead. This means that you 
can't afford to leave him alorte in 
case he stroJis off to get himself 
ikiJIed while you make a 
cuppa. 

The icons available 
are your basic Tght', 
'talk", "walk" variety, 
although other magical 
icofti can be collected. 
Magic? 'iup. magic In this Riobin 
Hood tale, the forces of Heme

this game. There's nu lack of things to

tto yoLT do, and to whidi pecpie?

Ifi si its worst when yoy get talwn

as it simply serves to spoil the ftow of

So, summrng up tiime- Rofiin Hood is 
a rm& and reasonably efifective way of

jIso occupy the colsMiisls, ft is entirely 
ikely that a large number of 
?uNy-manned fnirallatJons could mean 
[fiat consCaiction will not be poisiWe, 
because all the avaibttile men are busy 
elsewhere, 

Jugglmg manpower is one prjtiJem, 
but so IS juggling yaur budget T^xsiion 
fv^s. muse be ^eL (xjr an eye must be 
■:ept on the (ong-tenm effectj on the 
OOL - nobody likes heavy taxatfon, no 
matter wtist [he reason. 

Also, grants for civilian and mtlitary 
deveiapment rrujt be clasefy mortitwed, 
A high grant to the milrtary will provide 
fet devefoprnenr of new weaponi, but 
It may ncft make the population too 
happy if they haven't yet got a spcuis 
aadium, Of course, too low a grant will 
fsean that th€ militajy is under-devef- 
oped, maiing the cotony vufnerable ta a 
TBfe acfvanced attack. 

Control of your milltsiry is just as vital 



a part of the game as constructing a 
well ordered and shi'ny. happy cfty. 

Organising the st^trc defence systems, 
such as teser turrets and' missile taunch- 
ers, is only one part The other is the 
constrvctiofn, control and deployiment of 
the mobile forces. 

Jr>itlaNy, the decision wifl lie in how 
much manpower you sre willing to 
commit Co the factories producmg the 
equipment and vvhich type of vehicle 
you want to produce - the more 
advanced, the longer it tai^es ^rtd the 
moce resources it will use. 

Once you have bultt up your icock- 
piie of equipment, decisions have to be 
madte as to whefie it will be pfaced and 
hciw it will be manouewred. At your dl^ 
posai you have eight markers whrcfi can 
be strategically placed af>ywhefe on the 
map and used to guide the tanks and 
aircraft around the play area, by send- 
ing one Of a group to say one of Bie 
markers. They can also be guided to

attack an enem^ citf, aHfK?ugh the loca- 
tion of this wjlf not bKome known to 
you unless you sponsor spying artivi^, 
another demand on your stretched Ixid- 
get. 

There is no way of rndivrduafly con^ 
troifing the tanks or aircraft. The only 
control yo4J have ipof general move- 
ment patterns, a all of the attack 
responses are auBamaied. Defence rriay 
seem an unnecessary burden' on a hud- 
get which could be better devoted to 
improving the OOL, tiut it will never be 
very Jiigh if the cofony is overrun by 
aliens. 

To help you make these weighty 
decisions are a panel of advisers. The 
advisers grve information about each of 
the different aspects of the colony - 
population, iHJdget, number of manu- 
facturing instaJlations, rriorafe etc - and 
wilJ QccasionaJly give recomnrendatJons. 
Simple things like: "We need more food 
ya buggaf will not appear, but more 
succinct hints wjli be apparent- 
It alJ sounds very complex and it is, 
but this is the next generatron of 
God-games and will appeal to those 
vi/ho have successfulJy met tfie chaJlenge 
of Sim-Cfty and Fopuiouj and are ioofc- 
ing for something more chaNenging to 
take them on to the ne«r level of game- 
pfay. 

It skilfully combines botfi the con- 
straints of building a city that can be 
Jiappily lived in with the pfoWems of try- 
ing to defeat a malevorent opponent, 
and all the time you have to try and 
keep every one happy tjy not over- 
Spending and leaving everyone to 
starve. 

There is no fixed objective to aim for, 
no timeipan across wJiich your efforts 
are measured, The only target s a Quali- 
ty of Life which reaches above aind 
beyond '90%, 

But its compiejiity does not make it 
drfficult to use,, Simple point and click 
systems and an isometric large-scale 
map mean that the game's system 
becomes almost second nature after a 
period of familiarisation. 

Don't make the misiake of comparing 
this game to (mage Work's IWega Lo 
Mania, one of last issue's Gamer Golds - 
they we very different tO' one another, 
MLW is far less camplej( and geared to 
fyn and humour, while providing a 



large amount of challenge and a fabu- 
lous game 

Utopia goes for the more involved 
and time-consuming approach which 
t^as no definite answer. It doesn't hawe 
that many definite quesiions to be hon- 
est. And It will provide hundreds of 
hours of brain-btowing to those willing 
to invest the trm* needed to l>e success- 
ful. They are both excellent games 
doing two different things. 

The crisp and colourful graphics are 
easy on the eye and the sound is quite 
simptjf superb - a dramatic tune coupled 
with stunning effects make it worth 
turning the sound up. Quite jrmply 
Gremlin have produced a very slick 
package which takes tfie rMstron of con- 
ffofling ar>d developing a city or planet 
one stage further than anything before. 

Be warned however - it may be easy 
to use, bi/t rt is anything but easy to 
beat. If you csn'i Invest the time need- 
ed, thinif carefully before purchasingi. 
This isn't a crittdsm, meref^ something to 
tK aware of. But whether you have the 
time or not, this is a game worthy of 
Ttwrras More's legacy.

Duncan Evans sorts out the best from the rest 



Filled Vector 
Designer 

DMII97-I7-8ftJoftwow 

If you want a really meaty PD Ltility, 
you'll go ji long way before you gome 
scrosi anything as powerful in perfor- 
maice, and yet as hopelessly 

unfriendly, as The Special brothers 

d«&igner prog. 
You want prdinaiy vectors, filled vec- 



tor, bobs? You'vt come to the right 

place. Reactable instmctionj, a ckar info 
panel, sensible operation and uier 
friencfiy interface? Forget it. 

There'5 a nice demo stiowing what 
the designer can do^ and there are 
copfoui instructions detailing how to 
design the aforementioned obfKts and 
Incorporate them into the Red Sector 
l^mo Mal<erand your own programs. 

UnforturTatelyj the typeface rs almost 




fmtd V^tor Dnignrr: PonKrrint twt irnfrftncH^ 



unreadable, with sevefal inanymous 
characterij and it H rithef crude in 

operation, 

Basically th« program lets you 
arrange and manipulate points in all 
three dimen^itoni. The points are con- 
nected, then the side or face is filled . 
Various tricfcy manipulations car> be 
pefformed on yow obfcct until at last 
you hdrvie a iinisheid pfxiduct that can be 
saved in a variety d different ways. 

The programiTKfs th«msclvei admit 
that It u an untriendly program 
but ts quite powefful - they claim 
design of the M^ximLim 
Overdrive demo was achieved 
with this veiy utSly. 

Stifl, if you are willing to get to 
grips with it. Us worth a try, 
especially if you already have ttte 
Red Sector demo mal<er, 

Uamatron 

Diikl249 -}7-Bft Software 
M inter goes shareware'! Yup, age- 
ing hippy Jeff Minter has put out 
hil latest pixeloid opus on share- 
ware. In this tatest offering you'l 



ste an idealisett view of the industry 
tlijit guarantees tfiat Jeff won't be wodc- 

ing for any major software houses, and 
then you're into the game itself. If you 
like it ifs five quid to Llamasoft; if you 
don't, then it's no loss. 

Llamatnon is, of course, a r^worlcing 
of Williams Robotfon. Control your 
llama, rescue the other llamas onscreen, 
and blast ali the creatures heading your 
way. 

Simple stuff, jazzed up with power- 
Upi, some pretty damn good sound 
effects and tough action gamepCay. 

BoQtblock Utilities 

Dlik Ull ^ 17-BftSofiwan 
A handsome collection of utilities to 
install on to your Woritbench disk or 
with any auto-booting disl( you might 
want to produce. There are four cate- ^ ' 




ga^y ahl-taitiiomd btaslin^l 




> gorles, eich nicely expUined and 
tlear^ set out, There's stuff for the C 
directory to include in your itartup 
jequence, for the b&otb'lock on disks 
and for your Workbench. 

In the standard C directa<iv are stan- 
dard commaTids such as Change 
Directaiy, Copy, Delete, Echo (print to 
screen), Tesl File Editor, Execute, Make 
Directory, S«t Wap (tseymaps). Set K«y 
(ygur own map). Type and Type To List 
text files to the screenj and Windowc 
Size. 

Pretty roytine. The more Interesting 
utilitlei are m ttie next foWer. Here you 
can add borders, clear the screen, 
check for a virui, use a simple demo 
crea,lor allied with a sound fHe noise- 
playef, show any -IFF picture on boot 

^Every SO often the 
screen suddenly 
flashes a skdl at the 
user while issuing a 
pretty horrifying 
scream % 



up, clear that pic from the screen, add 

a 3D starfield, plus stripes, There's also 
a couple of text mesiage creatars in 
Sjperwriter and Rainbow Writer, 

Supenvriter Is fairty useless since you 
have the multi-coloured sequel, 
Itainbow Writer, also included. The lat- 
ter Is also easiei" to use and more user 
friendly. On this your message Is dis- 
played in ofifi flf a number of typefaces, 
on top of a 3D scrolling starfield, 

A ike touch is that you can change 
all the colours around, and alter the 
speed of the starfield between very fast 
and a dead stBp, There's also scrolling 
messages at the bottom of the screen 
which can be redefined for your own 
use. While this isn't a particuiaft^ pow- 
erful utility on its own. It is nice and 
simple and can be added to any demo 
disk with very little effort. 

in the bootblock folder are Inltiial 
utilities to use. There's a crude coloured 
screen scroller with a iemi-iegible mes- 
sage tacing across it, a menu of 
options, and something called the util- 
ity boot installer. 

This turns memory and disk drives 
on or off, forces a hand reset and Installs 
itself on to standard bootblocki without 
creating any damage. 

This folder is really only of marginal 
use since the stuff in the other folder 
largely overlaps anyway. Finally there

Picture Help 

Diik J25S - \7'Sit ioftwsft 

Convert a picture of one resolution to another resolution. The function of this 
program is simple mou^h,, in that for whatever reason, yoy can load a pkcy In 
one res and save it another, Vou can also magnify areas of the picture first, 
though why tothef when there' s nothing you can actually do with it? 

This is a shareware product hom an Italian with only a vague grasp of the 
Er>glish language and who requires you to send him, wait for it, £10 rf you use 
the program. Of you can send him £2fi to receive version 2 which will include 
simpae art package commands. When he's written it. 

The commands, such as they are, ar€ accessed by drop-down menus. 
Sometimes. For some reason the program has a very hard time reading the 
mouse and either doesn't produce the menu, or drops it prematurely. 

The ability to change tfw res of pictures is a marginally useful function that is 
certainly not wofth £10 - and if s this kind of grasping that will kill shareware - 
espKially when you cannot savc' the altered picture with a new filename. 

This is a bug admitted to tjy the author - a fis is promised for version 2 - but 
unfortunately the program didn''t work properly anyway.. The file selector closed 
without letting you select anything. It may just be a dodgy copy, but why take 
the chance when there are alternative programs available? 




J* COM of help whtf> iti not nmdnl} 

are the goodies to add to Workbench. 
A particularly amusing orre to install on 
a frier>d's diik - without telling them, of 
course - Is the Nightmare utility. 

Every so often the screen suddenly 
fiastves 3 situll at tt^ user while issuing a 
pretty horrifying scream. Mate sure you 
turn the volume up on theif Amiga, 
then give them a disk with this 
installed. 

The other features are less practical 
joke-minded; you can load a 
Workbench from the CLI, change the 
colour of the bar at the top of a win- 
dow, make the windows zoom when 
being dosed, and change the look of 



the forwards and backwards gadgets- 
It's an interesting collection of easy 

to u!e utilities, with some more useful 
than Others, but it's worth getting just 
to scare the life out of an unsuspecting 
friend- If you make your own demo 
disks or just want to improve the front 
end, the other utilities will certainly give 
you your mone/s worth.

^ decent black and white version of 
Asteroids. 

That's all you can reetfly say about 
this fol, ^Kcept that a cowpfe of the 
selections take you back to the main 
menu, but won't let you select any- 
thing, There's a Rabacop slideshow 
consiiting of one picture - albeit a 
good one - and only the Asteroids 
cidime Is worth having at all. It beasts 
smooth line animation and t/aditlonal 
gamepiay. 



Mech Fight 

Dttk i2S9 - 17'BitSoftmiK 

ObvtDLisly inspired by Me<;:h Warrior, 
Mech F'ght i";, in fart, norhlno fiV* i?iist 



game of armoured mayhem. It's mere a 
sci-fi version of tfte Ultirna games, 

Vou get a top<lown view with smad 
graphics wandering around stylised 
buildings in seaiich of weapons, goodies 
and a plot. 

Ves, somewhat distressingly, the plot 
and the roison d'etre of the game are 
left for you to discov^er. A gtood prod of 
the keyboard reveals unexpected

A coupte iii the gantev 'm this month's roundup «re frowi Paiace Software •. 
ShcMJt-'Em-Up Construction Kit. which wai released in 19S9. Hopefully b> 
now people should know how lo get the bevi from it Of so I hoped. 

One of the b*tter SEUCR releases Is the limply titled Raid, a rtofy uf a 
helicopter on a verticafly icrolljng icreen of deitniction. Of * home pro 
grammer s homage to SWIV 

Y«s, once past level onv il does look very much like parts of SWtV. 
Unfortunately, this homage »i nwreiy visual; the action is mor* ihitt and 
stodgy than fast and estciting. 

If you play the ^me Hke H wais SWIV or any vertical scroller you can ihtnk 
i>l diSiltef J> only secoftds away The fint Ifwef is quite cunning Vowr ihip

The traJni are nicety done, but yew mh Come a cropper with some ol the

Not a great 1^ ganw. but a reasonable attempt, with some nice sampled 
sounds, and certainly irkhy enough to maintain interest. 



enable you to copy fiki to and fn^m an 
MSdos disk. 

Messy Dos goes one stage further in 
albwln<; you to use either Amiga disks 
or PC disks in the same drive, snd to 
save or read files on to or from those 
K format disU. So you can work on 



1 The printer prefs set 
Ifiresented, in broken 
making K wodt with your machine is 
probably hit and miss. Speed-wise, 
the text editor is merely average, 
and disappointingly you can't even 
load the instructions file into the 
program. 

The graphics editor afllows you to 
mess around with .IfF piccies, and 
adds basic drawing and fiHing rou- 
tines, but a ttiallenge to an art pack- 
age it is not, If you want to make 
alterations to pics, why use a very 
underpowered system and sp&nd sll 
night trying to get it right? 

I'm afraid that this program, 
wtiile ottering both twt and graph- 
ics functions, offers tar too little in 
either category to give il precedence 
over any professional package, even 
at a PD price.

Stuff at home, save as Ascli on to a PC 
disii, and take it into work the nej^t day. 

Simply auto-boating wi>th tf>« Messy 
Dos disk sets up the system for uje, and 
there are instructions on how to incor- 
porate it Into your awn versions of 
Workbench. When you come to read or 
write to a PC disk all you hafve to do is 
name the drive as MSQ'i or MSI: for 
example. 

The cEei/er part is when you save a 
file on to an Amiga disk, stick a PC desk 
into the same drive, and save as Ascll 
on to that. If you swap between the PC 
and Amiga with any frequency this is a 
very itseful utiflly.

* page, iome average musk and t tie- 
choice of games, Cridmnner is based 
on that antient classic Centipede, but 
with rrobite guns down the side and 

aloi>g tfie bottom of the screen, shoot- 
ing at yoy.. 

From the top, on* or more cen- 
tipede-type iniecti race, though the 
graphics aa so bad they could be a ny- 
thifig:. Shoot a part of the centipede 
and it turns Into a green blob- Unless 
ywj continue to destroy the green blob 
it will eventoaliy cracl< open and fife at 
yau. 

That's it rtaiiiy. It's duii' ar>d boring, 
the graphics are dire, and the gamepiay 
i! repetitive. 

la much for Gridrunner, the other 
two at least iook smart. In fact, they 
Iwlt like games written by demo pro- 
grammers. All flash anW no gamepiay. 

Rebound is the only game on the 
disk borderi-ng on playable. It's 
Bteakoii't, turned on its side. Power-ops 
and special effects abound, but the 
annoying thing is the speed of your 
bat. It's just too slow to make ^kiii the 
winning factor. 

Never mind, ^t [eist it's almost 
tfiere. The Invaders doesn't even come 
close. A sideways scrolling Defender- 
ity\^ ganrve witfi two very flashy space- 
ships, an energy top up, homing 
missiles and mines, and bonus point 



\ 



Icons are sti the components. When 
you see the ffrst lumbering spaceship 
bearing down on your hnmebase you 
think "hey this kid can program". 
Clever and skilful shootings will bring 
the alien down in a shower of expiod- 
ing chunks and pyrotechnics. 

Very nice indeed for PD. The trouble 
is that that's all there is to the game. 
Vou get lots of these spaceships on 
evefy level, which merely consist of 
more spaceships. 

After you've cleared four levels 
stuffed full of just one styfe of alien ship 
you reach for thfi off switch in disap- 
pointment, 

This is generally a good looking col- 
lection, but none of them qualify as 
good games, and only Rebound scrapes 
in to the average category. 

Dfsk Master 

Using Workbench for menial tasks or 
just the odd disk operation is fine, but 
when you want a little more infomna- 
tion and a bit mare power, and have a 
few more disJts to process, a decent col- 
lection of utiJities is a godsend. 

The on originally titled Disk Master 
sporti a very dear front end, listing the 
main functions down the centre of the 
screen, with the contents gf one drive 




Air Ace II 




aiifil76S-V!ruiFfeeFD 
When Palace released the original C-64 version of SElXliC it was a cracking goo^" 

program, onl>' lacking in the facility to include power-ups and extra weapons. 

Not enough memory, said Palace. Ah^ we thought, the Amiga and ST ver- 
sions will soon see to that. But llTey didn't, because then you the man - or 
woman - in the street might create something which would embarrass those 
sahware houses charging £2S a chucic for their games. 

And JO the Amiga and ST SEUCKs were a disappointment, ancf having 
ploughed through a pile of dismal gan>es created with the things, I wonder why 
Palace waj ever womed in the first piace. Air Ace H personifies everything that is 
bad about unimagirvative games created with SEUCK, 

The sprites are small, the backgrounds are anonymflus, your plane moves like 
a skjg, the enemy's bulkts move too quickly, there is damn little intelligent game 
design. And the sprite detection, if you'll pardon the pun, SEUCKj, 

I've had more hrn stapling my thumb than playing this tat. A nice idea with 
the World War I approach, it just goes dreadfully wrong.

down cine side, and a second drive 
down the other. Initially, the left side is 
designated as the source and the right 
as tfie destination, for copying files, but 
this can be switched around with ant 
click- 

The main functions are Copy, 
f>elete, Rename, Make DirectOfy, Select 
All, Clear All, fiead File, Show Picture, 
PMy fvteduk, Info [length In bytes and 
blocks plus whether ttiere is any protec- 
tion or not). Print File, Hex Dtflnp, Print 
piirectory. Add Protection to a 13e, and 
Execute a file. 

That's just the ones in the centre. 
The mundane functions such u Fonnat 
- with or without verify - Verify Disk, 
Virus Killer, Block Editor and Dak Copy 
are on a separate soeen. 

All the functtons are easy to use, and 
you can specify which devKe & being 
inead or written to in my ontar. 4 lifted 
the Show Pic option swice you can scan 
through a demo disi of d«gitti#d pics 
say, see which are the good ores and 
copy them. 

What maksf this set of utilities valu- 
able is that the diik lutiMmitJ straight 



wThe grapbia are 
so had they could be 
anything m 



mto the main program. There's no 
messing about with title pages, just gro 

straight in there, select what function 
you want and the job is done. 

There are a couple of related bugs to 
avoid that are annoying since they are 
fairfy obvious. If, when selecting func- 
tions like Make Directory, you don't 
enter a new directory name but just 
click on the Cfose Window gadget - 
which activates the function rather than 
cancelling it - the program crashes. 

Not providing exits kom a couple of 
the functions, and then crashing when 
you try to get out isn't too hot, but 
apart from thit these utilities are fast, 
friendly, clearty ^u 

laid out and useful. fli

In your face... 

t'm goiog to tsk* jwu Qn ^ mystical 

iflurney, back through time to a pJiate 
in liistDfy tliat will iliuminate your foul 
and light your ¥e with liappine» (hang 
□n a minjte, this belongs On a Enigma L?lf). 

I'm actually going to take you back a cojpie of 
months to the |jne issue of Arrtiga Cofj\piftifig (I bet 
you're all thinking, tut^ urrr, ii that all?}. Anyway, that 
issue with the piggy bank on. The front had a yellow 
boJi on page J3, and in it was the Tune of the Mcmth 
SKlion, plus i ramble on how you should cr«ate MED 
Songs: "It's all too easy, when using a tool like MED, to 
faJI into iMid habits and produce music that is repeti- 
tious and bland.... there can be little excuse for lazy 
Composing." 

This is ejtcellent advice and all of which is com- 
pleteify thrashed three timej wer (and again for luck) 
by September's Tune of the Month, [or Crud of the 
Month), "pH-l". Er, I Can Only ask.,, what happe^^sd? 
What factCWMnfl'Uenced yaur infinite and divine 
Amjgan wisdom into chooiirg such Watant magnetic 
mush? i have been cogitating my brain cells on this for 
some time - using the Amiga powerpack to make 
some toast in the bored moriKOts - and I've devised 
five possible solutions: 

1 . It was the onljc tun* sent h. 

2. The person who chose it had (a) a hartgover (b) 

fallen asleep (c) a big distoftfon in his/her ear^obes 
(d) had be*n held to ransom by a Cil Amiga virus, 

3. You were simultaneously listening to the complete 
works of Stock, Aitken and Waterman. 

4. You accidentally played it backwards ttterefore mak- 
ing it sound much better.. 

5. You onfy did that becaus* you'd had so rnany origi- 
nal arvd totally c"p e<ntries at the same time- 

I know you are iookirtg fdr Original pieces of music, but 
this one was definitely - and without buttering my 
crumpet - a flop on a floppy. Still, that's not the end 
o! the v/oM, and I've loved every other Tune of the 
Month so far (the composer of ED20?' & Friends 
deserves a credit]]. Anyway^ I have to go now as I'm 
flopping all over the room (zits., you know!), 

Eddie Talbot, Rugby 

There Is juit no pleising some people, is there? At 
Amiga C&fnptitinq we try to pick the best and most 
original tunes from the submlsiioni pile. Believe 
you me, there ii much, much worse that doesn't 
make It to the diski 

We also aim to differ the tune each month. As an 
example, for September's tune we provided you 




TO 



with pH-1, an &(iS State bleepy kind of tune which 
although not particularly melodic was most defi- 
nitely original. 

We are a reasonable team here at Amiga 
(Lofnpating and the message is simple - If you can do 
any better then stop writing and start tapping 
those keys! If It's any good, it Just might make Its 
way onto the best coverdlsk In the business, 

3D Master 

It's brill. It's fab. It's farnlabadosy. What am I talcing 
about? 3D Master of course. I have been usinq iri 
Amiga for years now, and ai Such I was beginning to 
get a wee bit bo^ed (wdl I do use it every day) so fw 
been looking at the world of ray tracing I used the 
Real 3D demo disk on the Amiga Computing rrwg' and 
I thought it was a bit too much (including ttie price), 
so when I saw tt» Senlac Software PD ad showmg 30 
master at £33 I thought "could this be what I'm bak- 
ing for?". 

A quick phone call to Senlac convinced me to buy it 
without tfying the demo version. Order pJ^ced at 



Credit where it's due? 



I would like to add my thoughts to the current Pomo' 
Domain discussion. Although some find porne^graphy 
unpleasant, the same can be Said of smoking. Whilst 
not a hedonist, I find it unacceptable for adults to 
condemn otiher adults' self-indulgence if conducted 
in private with other consenting adults. 

Although children ckbtaining pornography is dan- 
gerous as it may distort their views regarding love 
and sex, I think that dirty PD is the least of the moral 
pitfalls fating the yowng, I don't base my opinion on 
the simplistic "violence is worse than sejn so don't 
worry about pornography" argument^ but you see 
my pcHnt. 

To protea the young I suggest that PD Eibraries 
only supply "Adult" PD to credit card sales - children 
don't have them and if they do use their parents' 



cards, it can be detected. Howeww, m a tree society 
adults must have the dght lo cf^oose I am not ia^fing 
pornographic PD is good - or bad - but you pay your 
money and make your choice. Anyway, thanks f of the 
fonjm on this toptc and lor producing the best Amiga 
specific magafine bar none 

Roland CucweU, BirmJf>gham 

It's an Interesting Idea, onty letting "over 1ft" 
material be sold to credit card customers. The 
queftlon liy are yoy not Fcstricting peoples' right 
to choose if they don't happen to hav« a credit 
card? 

I must admit. It does sound like a quick and 
Ideal way to stop tclds getting their hands on Che 
peryy side of PD. 



2.30pm arKl 1 received it at 7.00 the next morrilng. 
htow I tiave rw experience with ray tracing and can't 
draw for toftee but within an hour I was drawing (dull, 
shiny, mirrored) balls, boxes, triangles, changing the 
angle of view, putting lights in the sli.y and then ray 
tTKing, It's » bloody easy. Orte feature I do like is that 
you can edit anything at any time, 

h IS the best editor I've used in any package. 
Rendering is veiy fast, taking only minutes to do a pic- 
ture, so do not think it's PD, because it's not. The 
author Martin Staley has done a very good deed 
indeed by giving us. this little gem at Such a low price - 
ifi worth much, much more. 

So do the fight thing and support him, as he will 
update the package and I believe when he does you 
will be seeing 3D Master as the best ray tracing pack- 
age at any price. 

Phone up the awfully nice people at $enlac, on 
0424 4454?a, and order 30 Master now,,, you won't 
besory, 

Michael Allen Thflrnton, Worcestershire 

There you go! If you are Into shiny mirrored balls, 
take Michael's advice - get on the phone and ring 
Senlac now. Mind you, with a middle name like 
Allen would you actually trust this man? 



Workstation winner 

I am writing to say how good "Workstation" is, I 
thought, could this be as good as everybody claims in 
your letter pages? Well I'tested it and 1 think It is better 
than I could ever Imagine. I mean, I thought those 
flashy icons which changed from one picture to 
another totally different frame were too advanced for 
the likes of me, but they are just so simple to do with 
Iconmaster, 

The SID program is brilliant, although I can use 
Shell and CLi It is all much easier using SID. Work 
which takes two hours In CU or Shell will only take a 
quarter o4 an hour

be a £30 effort, like Woritisench, or maybe even more. 

( would like to say "thank you" for selling it to me, 
and "thank you" for that page in your magazine each 
month. J wojld also like to say "goodbye" to

Finally, haw da yoj format text as bold, itallic or

In repfy to your QED question, I consulted Paul 
Austin, our Workstation expert, and he says the 
QED text editor can't format text as bold face or 
Italics because it is essentially a text editor and not 
a dedicated word processor. 

The PD wordprofessor that I suggest you get is 
Text Plus which can be obtained from Softvllle PD 
or any other larg*. well stocked PD iibrary. 

We don't charge £.10 for the WoekStation 
because we aren't «ut to make a maisive profit 
from it. We just wanted to corrpiiile the best PD util- 
Itiei around onto a useabte disk - with decent docu- 
mentation. By all accounts It hai been a great 
success. 

The Gametes up 

it is rny opinion that all your games test^ should indi- 
cate the follcming 

1 . Is the game hard-disk compatible? 

2. Is the game fully OS 2.0 compatible? 

3. Does the game take advantage of power accelera- 
tors eg.ttie 68030 processor? 

Unfortunately most games released for the Amiga 
do not fulfil these nequirements. I think that its your 
responsibility to inform about any advantage or disad- 
vantage of any piece of software. Also in my opinion 
the game rating percentages in Amigp Computing are 
way too high, You cannot give every game 90% rat- 
i:ngi...yes I know you depend on software companies' 
advertising, but please try to rate games a bit m&re 
seriously. 

Stein Erik Ciske, Norway 

Dear oh dear, we can't leem to get much right can 
we? We thtnk every game is utterly brilliant and 
assume that not everyone has items up to the valM

Amiga Computing 



of a small fami^ir car stuffed insicle their Amiga, 

Seriously though - if you can be serious about 
games - we are now into issue two of Amiga Gamer, 
the mini-magazJne wliich tells you what games an 
really like. You will notice that w* aren't over-gen- 
erous with the icores (ask Hawk software what they 
think) 

A great many readers assume that we will give a 
game a really high score in order to get Its advertis- 
ing. That is not how it works, Look at some back 
Issues of Amiga Computing, find the highest scoring 
games and then search out the adverts- ¥qu won't 
find any. 

Gamer indicates how much memory a game uiei. 
If any games support hard disks or accelerators we 
will tell you, providing the software houses tell us. 

Stick it! 

How many of you discard your hnoken joystklcs? Well 
here is a tip for two fire-buttoned "stick" types. If you 
find one side becomes broken, dismantle and swap the 
micrasw3tdi from one fire button for the broken one. 
Result is one workin-g joystick^ cost - nil.. 

This tip came about when I broke my joystick Over 
Christmas- Thanks for a great magazirw. 

James Abram, Wolverhampton 

I can spot a slight, teeny, almost insignificant snag. 
If you swap switches you will be left with a mirror 



Two's company... 



I am writing in reply to Colin Brown's request for help. 
It was a surprise to see that someone else had bought a 
CDTV Injfu D'lxQdi in Perth, I fully sympathise with the 
lack of software - 1 had two weeks with a wefcome disk 
that told me of all the amazing wonderful titles that 
were going to be available,,, eventually. 

There are rumours going around that you can 
attach a standard Amigi keyboard to the CDTV. I 
phoned P\iai\ in Dunfermline to ask themi about the 
article in the August 3 edition of New Computer 
Express and they laid that it wasn't as straightforward 
as plugging in the keyboard, but they were WOfking 
on the proWem. No doubt Pizazi will come up with a 
solution by the time this letter is published^ while 
Commodore will itill be pretending that the CDTV is 
not a computer. 

Now tfiat you know you have at least two readers 



with CDTV's maybe you could bear us in mind when 

you're making up your coverdlsks. IVe not had any 
problems with them yet but could you please avoid 
asking "Y/N" questions if you can. A few reviews of 
the software titles vvoutd be nice too. 

Frank Senyszak. Perth 

Two readers don't make a magazine, but your 
heartfelt pleas do not go unnoticed. We now have 
a regular Multimedia column which by happy 
chance, has already cKpiaJned how to connect an 
Amiga keyboard to the CDTV. 

As for CDTV-frlendly coverdlsks - we always do 
Dur best to make sure that our disks work With as 
many machine configurations as possible and we 
will itrive to ensure that CDTV users aren't left out 
in the c€Jd. 



Image of the knackered ji^tick you had before yew 
started. 

Not too bad If you aKvayi tend to use one partic- 
ular fire button I suppose. If your stick drops dead 
is It really such a big deal to fork out around a fiver 
for a brand sj^anking new one? 



Snapped poker 

I am writing to you because perhaps you can sav? my 
life. Whilst tidying my husbar>d's desk I dropped one 
of his disks but before i realised it I trod on it, 

It sn-apped, I haven't told him yet because I am 
hoping you can replace it. It came from your Amigo 
Computing magazine dated March 1991 Issue 34. I 
hope you can replace this as he enjoys playing 
Klondike- 
Mrs A,Ti*ecio, Surrey, 

We wouldn't do this for anyone Mrs Tuccio but, 
because your husband loves piaying Klondike and 
we wouldn't want you to get in trouble we'll send 
you a copy in the post. 

If your home shouW ever be ransacked by a herd 
of athtetic elephants stampedirtg over your entire 
collection of Amiga Computing diski, all you have to 
da is order a back Issue from Europress Direct The 
order form can be found near the back of the mag- 
azine. 



Shareware accounts 

Following on from your Business Round- Up article in 
the September issue, I would like to bring it to your 
attention - and hopefully get i bit of free advertising! 
- that there is in the Shareware area of the PC market 
a pmgram called BMS Professional that I have coded 
to; 

(a) assist me in runnin>g a PD library, and 

(b) hopefuliy help others to do a similar thing. 

It consists of severai modules, all fully integrated, 
and capable of handling up to 1 OO accounts, 50 stodc 
items, i VAT rates and so on. Anyone interested 
should drop a line to JirmSOFT PD at the address 
given. 

Can i congratulate you on producing the only 
Amiga specific magazine worth buying - but can we 
please have the advertisers index back? 

lain Roy, Pickering 

If anyone wants BMS Professional then write to lain 
Hoy, JlrmSOFT PD, Flinders, 7 Western Way, 
PiciuHng, North Yoritshire, Y018 ftl^P, On the sub- 
ject of the advertisers index. It Is at the back, com' 
pared to, say, the contents.

Forget all that scribtiling rough

pty press Tab tO' indent ttie next head- 
ing. Carry on in this way, and you can 
define headings to a depth of twenty 
levels. 

Day One's first sub-heading could 
be "looming Session", and could 
inciuds a list of its own sub-headingi 
such as "Oiicussion Topiics", 
"Methods-", and so on. By double-ckk- 
ing on any heading or sub-heading, it 
is e)(pandMl to show the m^\ level ot 
headings, and by double-clicking 
again, It is collapsed.

The beauty of a prog ram like Flow is 
the extent in which a simple initial lay- 
out can be extrapolated through vari- 
ous sub-lievels until a full outline is 
generated. 

The eaje with wfiich this is achieved 
by Fkjw is rather deceptive, however, as 
you could be forgiven for thinking 
you*re using little more than a word-

Ifouncl parliciITErly useful the pro- 
gram' i capacity to grab a headin'g at 

the highest level and drag it up or 
down the list of headings, taking all its 
sub-headings with it. In this way, 
whole schedules can be rearranged 
with a mouse drag in a tew seconds, or 
your outline can be laid out in a more 
bgical manner. 

Ey opening up to four outlines at 
once, it is also possible to cut and paste 
entire sections between them. If, for 
example, yoy have a separate project 
for the second day of yotfr manage- 
ment seminar, bvt wish to re-schedule 
the 1 0am slot so that the two days 
swap over, you can cut and paste from 
Day One to Day Two, and vige versa. 

Thb jort ot post-idea re-^wodting is 



line sort of exercise which normally 

results in your notebook becoming 
completely covered in amiws, circles, 
exclamation marks, and comTTients lite 
"maybe swap lOam slots", With Flow, 
the charge is accomplished the minute 
you think of it. 

The pfogram also has the invaluable 
ability to automatically number head- 
ings and re-number them if dragged to 
another location. This means you can 
generate lists and re-order them to 
ytKjr heart's content safe in the knowl- 
edge that the list is always in the cor- 
rect o*def. 

For lovers of officialdom, Flow's 
numbering pptiom also include the 
chapter-section-paragraph standard to 
bef^ound in all long and confusing doc- 
uments. If you really want, you tan 
generate outlines to baffle even the 
moat hardened insurance salesman I 

I was a little disappointed to find 
that Flow's Search function can't han- 
dle a search for a numbered paragraph. 
You cannot, for enample, tell it to look 
for paragraph I.A,l.(c), as the numbers 
are scattered around tagged on to the 
beginning of their respective headings. 
As they don't appear together in the 
document, the search function doesn't 
pick them up. 

You can jump to the pa^e of your 
choice, of course, but as Flow is organ- 
ised far more on the basis ol headings 
and' sub-4ieadings, the lack of a decent 
"go to section" option is a majOT omis- 
sion. 

More macros 

Ves, yoti guessed it - Flow is ARexx 
compatible, Vou can brefine any num- 
ber of macros, ten of which are svail- 
». able from a pull-down menu, and send 
or receive commands via an ARexx 
port. As just abpyt e^gryone and h is 
dog ^sed 

H^'and as it can, with practice, be a. 
powerful tool, its incluiion is a welcome 
sighL 

Conclusion 

Flow is a useful package which, after a 
short lime, can surprise you by how 
much It helps your thought generation 
and organisation. It won't have the 

ideas for you, but it is an ideal tool to 
apply to them once they've stnjggled 
from your over-burdened brain, 

. For Che money, it could offer a bit 
more, and is a fairiy expensive alterna- 
tive to the good o4d spiral bound note- 
book, but if your business involves a lot 
of work based around a developing 
idea, Flow would make a perfect com- 
plement to your planning process.

whidi jaiit use d standard inpyl/output 
functions rather than tjegin by tjyifig to 
open Intuition screens and windows. 

Within a few weeks you'll' find lt»at ywt 
come to terms with the gefleral idea of 
writing the code, compiling and linking 
«tt., and you can then concentrate on 
getting a decent tinderstaridirg of C's 
pointef ar>d structure operations. 

fiwse latter topics are vital and once a 
little e;(perierkce In these aneas has been 
pEaced under your belt you are likely to 
find thai examptes in the Amiga manuals. 
Including the official Addison Wesley RKM 
reference' manuals, will make quite a bit 
mare sense. 

One thing that should be menliorted 
to the aspMring C programmer is the busi- 
nesi of AhtSi C because, if you're new to 
C, you won't know about ttw hig change 
that has occurred recently. Since C's birth 
there's been a defacto standard based on 
a book written by Syrian Kernighan and 
D«nnls Richie called The C Pfopnjrnrrjipg 
ianguage (affectionately known a K&R), 
Son>ewhat iuiprislngty there has not been 
an oHidai standard, 

The growing popuiarily of C, the cre- 
ation of compilers by software houses 
who were rot involved with the original 
design of the language, together with a 
numtser of other related issues led to the 
fomiatjon of an ANSI (American National 
Standards InstJtute) C committee. 

Their objective? To look at the lan- 
guage, look at possible improvements 
which could be made, and to create an 
offidal standard. 

The standard formally defines things 
that were only hinted at in the origirval 
definl-tkjn of the language and it provides 
a number ol alterations which make it 
easier for a compiler ta check the validity 
cf C source vxk- 

For 1^ first time it also specrfie$ a set 
of standard function libraries which all

new compiJen; will support. All of the 
major C compilers are already almost fully 
AMSI C compatible but the same is not 
hue about the growing number of public 
domain offerings that bts nowadays avail- 
able. 

The biggest difference is likely to be 
the way that functions are written and 
declared and^ rf yo^i are learning C hom a 
PD version of the language, you may in 
fact need to uie function declarations 
based on the old style K&H CI 

Many existing introductory C books, 
incidentally, are are based on a pre-ANSl, 
te KGiR style, verskm of the C language. In 
your early C days onfy the HinctionrKiecla- 
rat ion/function-prototype orientated 
changes are likely to concern you - but it 
is as well to know that a number of other 
differences do exist. 

A new dimension 

The C worid has quite a lot to offer the 
Afniga programmer, incMing two excel- 
lent comrwrcial compilers.., 
Lattice/SAS C; This is the most expensrve 
Amiga C compiler environment but you 
do get an awful lot far your money 
includirsg the compllef, editor, linker, t

A bit of advice-..

powediit lource level debugger ami i col- 
lection of other programming toolt. 
Throw in an assembler, all the Amiga 
header files, the massive: Uttkt/SAS Mic- 
tion libraries and superb dooimaitltidn 
and it doesn't take long to ipprKiMe ^ 
this b the package the fMo tea onih tend 
to go tor. 

Manx's AJtet C: Ttii ii the other main 
commertrjl offering availiaible tot the 
Arruga. It also has m«ny gnd poJnls and, 
like the Lattice/SAS emiionment, comes 
with its own set of pngnmnng uSUSh 
(editor, libranan, <ittugi^ and $0 On), 
You get the fwi^ header lies^ the very 
CDmpreherme Adec fcstciian Ibmy and 
$ome good docuncfiHion.

Jection of fl r ^ o wne nts available. 'vVhen 
you buy one of thee compilefs you will 
not get the tfiiod Cwriniodore header 
ffle and thli itam to be a problem once 
you giA JTMa Amgi pro^amming poper. 
The header fies are, however, available 
Inxn Commodofe for araund £30. 

Sa Mfhtf choice do you have wher fol- 
Igwingi the nor»<ommercial road? Here 
are ume et the gotKlJes chat, for & few 
qud, CM) get you bito the world of C pro- 
gramming.,, 

Soiobon C: This Amiga version of the 
freeware compiler forms the basss of a 
mimtw of offerings. It started IHe on the 
ST and the Amiga port seems to have 
tieen leaxirkably trouble free. Sozobon C 
IS a K^H style compiler so you will not be 
ablie to use things Eike ANSI d lunction 
prototypes, 
Z C: This would seem to be a modified 



vwslofl of the above compiler. I've heard 
about it but have not per^naliy used it - 
Mar^ret Stanger however did look, at in 
the September issue] 

NorthC; Produced by Steve Hawtin, the 
MorthC disk is one of the newer offerings 
to hit the ^iga world, in the main it has 
proven to be quite good, and its library 
functions are growing with each release. 
The only real drawback is that it doesn't 
support the new ANSI styie of function 
declarations but, with a little practice at 
iBing and converting between the two C 
styles, this is less of a problem than might 
at lirat be imagrned. 

PDC' This is the only non-commercial 
offering I've come acrms that is usefully 
near to the ANSI standard in temis of ib 
support for function prototypes, hjnction 
declarations and structure passing. After 
some preliminary trials PDC looks to be 
about the best of the bunch as far as a 
cheap ANSI st^e C goes.

"Hugely efijoyabie, but dangerousiy stddktiDe" 

Dr, Trevor Harley, psychologist 

THC &AM£. At las!, i game that takes tJie world ol soccer 
seriCHjsJy, You tske over a s,tnjgglirig side In the English 1st 
Divlsioni and ssl about building a squad to win the I si 
Division title. Success iri dorrrtitk coonpeliUors (League, FA 
and League cups) ivill ieind to tht 3 European competitions. 
f^ybe a double, maybe a tfeble. 

SQUADS/TRAhtSftK MAAKH. Ttiere are 3 squads. I si T«jim, 
Reser»eTeam ami Youlh Team. 45 pia-yers in all, YouconlnoJ 
the Isl squad and the movement oF players between, them. 
Yqj also decide the transfer options (the troard handle 
finance). The transfer market and youth policy will deOermlriie 
your future teams and playing style, 
TRAlNMG. You have a weekly tiBining schedule for the squad 
as a whole and for Individual players. You will need to set 
your schedule to develop those skills that will support your 
team style. Young players in partlculafr can have thetr skills 
enhanced, 

TW MATCH. Usually sacrffkred in a managerrrtnt game. The 
match serves 3 purposes. First, it is the measure of yout 
team, and therefore your, performance. Secondly It is the 
only reliable source of informatian about your players. 
Thirdly, it allows you to make in -match laclica! adjustments 
demanded by the state of the game. Our unique 4 minute 
match simulation givES you all this, 

VWAT IS DIFRIIiHT AtCK/f HilS GAME? 
Division One '92 is a genuine soccer management 
simulation. Mo mental arithmetic, no "skill levels". It's all 
about i/our judgement of skills, aj^d your understanding of 
what blend will produce a side to beat the very bn'A in the 
country and In Europe, Our Division One 65 was used by IwO' 
league clubs in their youth training scheme. THIS REALLY fS 
A GEnaittE MANACEMEffT SlMULAJtOK 



"ft's a pity to call this Just s game" 

A& B Computing 

THE GAML HeadCoach is the complete American FootbaM 
simulation. You take charge of the latest recruit to the fIFL. 
and through skilful design of gameplans and the use of the 
colle^ draft, buitd up a ^13 man squad lo keep your fans 
happy and; wdn the SuperBowl, (Inlimiled seasons and ageihg 
playefB produce a nealistli: game of fluctuating fortunes, 
THE MATCH. Thte match is a game in itself taking about 40 
minutes l& complete. With 26 offensive plays and 21 
defeftsivt pfays, there Is iffiplt scop* lo rnjtch yoyr game- 
plan lo the skQIs of your squad, and explcut the weaknesses 
of the opposition. It's here where the strengths and 
weaknesses of your players are highlighted, 
UtAIKING CAM^. An opportunity to assess your players 
before they take the field. The appropriate coach will give 
you his view of the current form of any of the players flnd 
how th^y 9re peffonrilri^ in training. A 40 yard timed run will 
reveal their sharpness. Wide receivers, running backs, 
linebackers, comterbacks and saieties need to shine here. 
COUEGE DRAFT,. During the 16 match season, plus whatever 
playoff matches you achieve, you will find yourself praying 
fof a second classy running back or wide receiver, or need to 
beef up your offensive line (too many saicks). The College 
draft should be used lo find those stars of the future and 
make sure they're playing for you, 
STATlsncS.The staiisiics wntre will erscapsulate your team's 
and your player's season. Total yafds, rushing yards, passing 
yards, kick-off returns, punt returns (and averages for all 
ihese}, interceptions, sacks... all these are kept for each 
match, the whole season, for the team and for each player, 
American Football Is a game of stats and we retain that.

With n& more ado well dive 
nraight back in where I 
left Off last month, Thii 
time we'll round off dlt look at SID by 
revealing the mys-teries locked within 
ttie remaining coflimand panel. 

Rename, Delete 
and Disk 

Rename, m you're probably aware, will 
do exactly tJiat to any file which ha 
b^en highlighted. It's poMible to high- 
light myltiple files a-nd jump froni one 
to the next, simply hitting Return to 
add th& appropriate nime a you pro- 
ceed through the list 

Delete is another fairly self-eKplana- 
tory command, which will have the 
diesired effect on any "highlighted direc- 
tory or file providing, of course, that 
the disk and file in question sre unpna- 
tected. 

The third member of our initial trio is 
Diik wfiich can be a very handy addi- 
tion to SlOney's repertoire, giiwing an 
instant rundown on the status of any 
devke on your syitem, whether that be 
a floppy volume, a hard drive or s parti- 
tion. 

Protect, Set 
and Info 

The iKond trio kicks off with two files 
that at fint glance appear to be identi- 
cal but which have one very diistinct dif- 
ference. 

The fir^t of the two, namely Protect 
is designed to ^v«rk on indi^du^l filei, 
assigning a unique combination of flags 
or bits for each. With the aid of this lit- 
tle addition SID can help you to decide 
whether a Pie should be hidden, pro- 
tected, undeletable, &r in fact, any 
combination of the eight availabte bits. 

Once a combination Is complete and 
the protectior^ set tfw nett or previous 
file In the selected list can be acceded 
aVtd adpus-ted accordingly, When the 
final file h set and protected, all the 
flags are assigned and the selected files 
released. 

To check the status of any file imply 
cUck on bits after hitting the right 
mouse button at the bottom of the 
screen. This will display the bits status 
of all lilted files instantly. 

The Set option is almost identical, 
but once a bit combinatior^ is set it's 
applied to all the highlighted files. This 
may seem a little brutal but it can be 
invaluable if you want to universally 
change a bit, for example, hiding same 
Incnmilnating art work or ensuring that 



If you're a newcomer to the column 
you might be a little puzzled as to 
what this mysticat Workstation diik 
is all about. If that's the case it's 
worth checking out page 168 for 
details about what you're missing 
and how you can get in on the act 



Paul Austin 
explains 
how to get 
the best 
from SID's 
hidden 
talents in this 
final chapter 




Buckle up-for the final circuit 
at the controls of 

good old SID 



all files can be deleted if necessary, info 
works in a similar way to Disk but 
applies to files and directories rather 
than to disks. 

Simply highlight the file in question 
and hit the Inlo icon to reveal all the 
necessary information from tlve fomiat 
size, status and so on. 

All, None 
and Pattern 

All and None are, in effect ^ reflection 
of each other and are simply used to 
highlight or de-select entire direaory 
lists ready for copying, deletion, view- 
ing, hearing or, in fact, anything jrou 
fancy. 

The third; of the trilogy is retated to 
its predecessors but is i gre*t deJ nxwe 
subtle as it can be defined to select fBes 
by their niH\^ alone. For example, all 
files with the suffix .pk could be 
selected from a list of hundreds merely 
by adding the word .pfe after the Pi - 
or wild card - in the Pattern requester. 

Hi^t Return and all the files with the 
suffix .pk wiil be selected regardless of 
t)ie name in front of the suffix. Once 
sefected, ail the options are available. 

Pattern matching is very useful for all 



n^anner of disk managemejH so keep it 
In mind when you're working with 
large numbers of fitesi it can uve hours 
of arduous dickir>g. 



Byti 



es, memory 
and time 

Bytes Is another method of measuring 
the n« of a file and the number of hies 
and sub-diT«lOf*i within any direc- 
tory. The cormnand csi also be applied 
to individml fie. 

After Mif emy is iriected a njndown 
of tht byte$, bksdd, nmiber of files and 
directories appears below the com- 
mand panel for your penisal. 

Mttnoty qnts a detailed measure- 
ment of available Chip and Fast ram 
pkit a running total of the two. This is 
another very handy option for single 
drtve users who want to squeeze a few 
more f les into ram before dumping 
them back to a fresh floppy, 

Time. Yes, youVe guessed it, this 
one telis the time and before you reach 
for a biro to teill me... 'that wouid be all 
weiS ancf good il yov i^ouSd set the Woody 
time with the Wofkitation'', in fact you 
can, but it must be done through the 
CLI - or dare I say It, use Workbench. 



This seemingly strange state Qf affairs Is 
due to the cut down preferences used 
on the Workstation which has all the 
options of the original - apart from 
clock adjustment, of course - and still 
manages to do it using only 1SK as 
opposed to the 56K of the original pref- 
erences. 

The final three buttons are mnstJy 
ignored due to the inclusion of Lharca 
back an the main Workstation screen. 
Nevertheless if you want to go straight 
to Lharca rather than return to the 
main screen simply highlight a file and 
click on ARC. Now hit Return and 
Lharca will auto-load. 

Once loaded all the archiving 
options are ready and waiting so there's 
no need for the sometimes complex 
syntax usually associated with archiv- 
ing. 

For those of you who need alterna- 
tive archiving routines, nei^t month's 
issue will be a must because we'll lool^ 
at swapping some of 3lD'$ commands 
to suit you and your system. 

Until next month that's about it. 
Next time we'll also look at customising 
SID'S config file along with how to tin- 
ker with the internai workings of a few 
of his contemporariies.

Hard times 

About a year ago I acquired a CVP 40Mb hard drive 
fflf my A5M, and since then I have had quite a few 
problems with read/wirite enofi. Initially, the problem 
was FJKed by the local CammQdore importer who 
could not explain to m^ e»tactly liow he did it - the 
language \i i bit oi a probtem hefie. 

However, the problem recurred and I am now 
pretty ijre that ft h due to inadvertent use - by my 
inquisitive tlire<e-year-o-ld twins i - of the boot off/on 
switch on the front of the drive. I have used FixOisk 
arri DiskDKictor several times, to repair the d\ik strut- 
ture, iwt on re-fonnattirg the drive [always in ffS) the 
errors gradually reappear until the drive nio longer 
autoboots. I fear the root block is affected, and I won- 
der whether this is addressed by ttie FORMAT torn- 
mand. 

In view of my problems I wish to seek your advice 
Ofi tlie foliOwing: 

• What utility software is available to fully prepare a 
hard drive, partition it write the boot block, and so 
on? 

• Is FiifDIik capable of repairing the problem, and if 
so, how should that be done? 

• FiKDIsk tells me the device handler is 
5CSiO£V,DEVrCE, Where does it find that? Is it hard 
wired on rom as part of the drive? 

Please help I The drive was purchased from Power 
Computing in th* UK, but ifd mean enornious phone 
bills to contact them, 

Ron Piet«rson, Bangkok, Thailand 

Th« f am« switch h Innocent? Before you tape It 
down or otherwise restrict what Is actually a handy 
feature of the Impact Series II drives, consider the 
real problem. If you're still getting read/write 
errors after repeatedly re-formatting your hard 
drive (ouch I), the problem most likely lies with the 
drive mechanism. 

If the drive has received a fcnock in transit from 
the UK, or In 9 Bangkok warehouse, tihe drive heads 
will probably be damaged. The only practical solu- 
tion wouJd be to replace the hard drive itself with a 
ilimJIne Quantum Pro Drive mechanism. This will fft 
inugfy In the GVP's casing and shouldn't (OJt too 
much In your part of the world. 

As for the software you mention, FixDIsk Is about 
the best shareware hard and floppy disk repairer, 
and th« CVP PjuaitPrep software you should have 
received with your drive is perfectly adeqjate to 
prep, partitton, and format your hard drh*. 

Take the drive to your local deader and have him 
fit a rww Qiuantum mechanism in the shop. Make 
sure he does it on the spot because Iff not a difil- 
cult task and It sounds like he did a poor ji>b the 
first time you went to him. 

PC pieties 

I would h* obliged if ycur could help me with a query 
gn the utility tFF2PCXII on the CoverDisk. 

I can convert the image to PCX with no problems 
on an Amiga fonnatted dfsk, bot when I put the disk 
into an l&M P5/Z it refuses to be recognised, which I 
can understand. 

Could you please telf me the steps to load a con- 
verted IFF file in PCX to the PC? 

G D CoBon, ^tokfi-on-Trent 

jtidglng hy the number of letters we get along a 
similar vein, there are armies of Amiga owners tiy- 
ir>g to force PCs to accept Amiga files. The process 
is fairly simple. First, you buy a PD or shareware

Write to Amiga Corr^pyting, 
Europa Hojse. Adlinoton Park, Macclesfield SK104NP 

MUqs transfer program such as Me^syDoi, or go 
for one of the commerdal ones like Do;-2.-Dos. 
Once you've set this up on your Amiga, it's a simple 
matter of formattfng a PC disk and cofiying the file 
on to It, 

Transfer programs usually allow you to specify 
which of your floppy drives is to be traated as a PC 
drive, but I'd recommend MessyDos 3:5 it's share- 
ware and allows the floppy drive to act ai an Amiga 
drive or a PC drive, depending on w^at fomnat of 
disk is [nserted. It's a bit trickier to Install than one 
of the commercial programs, but MessyDos ii 
worth the effort. 

Bother with bugs 

I am in desp&rate need of advice as I have a problem 

with a virus and can't get rid of it. 

I recently purchased an AjOO wdth A501 memoty 
upgrade, and bought separately a Zydec external 
drive. However, nearly all my disks have read/write 
flniqrs or Not A Valid Dm Disk in Unit cr 1 . 

My friend suggested I try a virus ^killer, so I went to 
my local software store who supplied wtiat Cfi^ con- 
sidered the best killer for £10. I loaded it up and 
bingo, a requester with ttw message "LPnknovHi {virus} 
task in memory" popped up. 

Having followed the onscreen instructions i temii- 
nated it, at sd I thought. Tht vfrus killer then crashed 

My fault, I thought, and went through ttie same 
procedure but was rewarded with another crash I 
tried six times to load the killer, and each time after 
terminating a vinjs it crashed. The virus killer a no( at 
fault as I have replaced it with a new one artd used my 
friend's version with tfw same rtsulls- 

I need help as P am stuck with £400 worth of usdea 
junk until the problem is solved. 

S fones, Hereford 

Vou say the virus Wffer tt not at fault but it you 
paid £10 for a commercJaJ killer. It almost cenaMy 
Fs. All the best Amiga virus killers are available for a 
small fee as shareware or PO programs, and the 
only commercial killers I can think of are hopek'ssly 
out of date. 

Check out this month's CoverDisk! Voa wW find * 
cof}y of John Veldthuis's excellent freeware Virus 
Checker. 

It [s the latest version, whicli recognises matiy 
new file viruses, Including the Saddam virus, and 
comes with a program called FkSdddam. 

Use this to check att your disks and kill &ff the 
viruses you find, then run ft at regular intervals to 
ensure your collection Isn't hfected again. As a sen- 
sible Amiga owner, you should also keep an eye on 
the PD/shareware scene for the latest develop- 
ments on the virus front. 



i UM the Pen Pal wcrd processor, and whenever 1 tty 
printing anything using the Amiga Fonts/Amiga 
Cfaphics option, after printing what I have asked, the 
pnnter, upon reaching the start of the next sheet of 
paper, stau ponting a toad of continunjus black lines 
and Eht program just freezes then gives me a guru. 

TfiH can't b* due to lack of memory, because I have 
an A590 with eittra 2Mb, and ProWrite J.M gives me 
no proUems I have ctwcked the obvious, such as set- 
ting up the correct prantef dfiv«f, but to no avail. 

Please can you help, as I have £80 of software just 
srttiing on the shdf? My pnnter is a Seikosha SPIBOai 
and the printer driver I use is the MPS_f 2S0. One 
other question - assuming you can solve the prioting 
problem, how do I impo<t Photon paint pictures into 
Pen Pal without them looking like tlhey've gone 
through a shredder? 

R C Caylor, Doddinghurst 

Your problem almost certainly lies with the printer 
driver, tfw CMPS_1 250 driver Is specificaIFy designed 
to work with the Commodore printer and will be 
only incompletely compatible with other printers. 

The Seiko sha is an Epson-comp>atible printer, so 
you should use the standard EpionX driver supplied 
witit Workfiench and on the Pen Pal extras disk. If 
you still have problems, check your printer's DIP 
switches to ensure they're set up correctly for 
graphics printing. Ifs hfghly unlikely that l^e fault 
lies here, but it's always worth checking them. 

The reason your Photon Paint pictures are look- 
trig a bit bedraggled is because Pen Pal Is designed 
to cope only with el^ht colour Imaiges. If, therefore, 
ytm want an accurate representation of your graph- 
ki, you'll have to restrict yourself H> the smaller 
p«lette. No HAM printing for you I'm af raidl 

Imported drives 

I am considering buying a CVP series II 52Mb hard 
drive for my ASQO, and have seen advertisements in an 
Am«rkan magaiZine whtere they sell this hard drive for 
approximately J600. At the current rate of exchange, 
this works out at £34^1. 

In the UK, the sams product is advertised for 
approximately £500. Many other products are also 
cheaper in the US. I appreciate the risks invo^ed, espe- 
cially if the goods are faulty, but if purchased on a 
credit card, are there any savings to be made? 

How do you overcome the power supply differ- 
ences, and how much would shipping and import 
duties cost? Are there any other potentiaf pitfalk? 

j R Evafis, Pontypool 

The CVP power supplies which come with Impact 
Series II drives work both In the US and the UK 
without the need for an adaptor. The question of 
postage and import duties is another thing entirely. 

Check with the retailer and find out how much 
more they charge for overseas delivery. You might 
find they will charge little or no more, but you may 
find yourself landed with a hefty courier hill. As for 
Import duties, Tm not genned up or such matters 
and can't really say how much ll'd cost. Mowevw, 
we regiulariy receive packages from the US, some of 
which require duties of £^0 or more to release 
them from the dutches of the Enelse man. Your 
best bet would be to phone Customs and Excise. 

The only other probllem I can s«e arising Is If the 
drive develops a fault or is damaged in transit. Tf^ 
process of having It replaced by the retailler would 
undoubtedly be much more probnged than If the 
drive was bought in the UK.

To kick off my sjidl ai Ani/^u QKnpuCinp'i 
new cofnms coluinnist, I ihooght I'd give 
you h mini-rievievv d alf the eoflnmi pack- 
ages I've used on the Ami^ 

All of the systemi mentioned ibelow work quite 
well, so it'i down to my penoiai opinion of each 
o«e. Some people will swear by the ones ! don't 
recommend - but choice of comms software is a 
veiypenonal thing. 

I would always recommend that you try the free 
or shareware package first, before graduating to 
the commercial systems. Shareware packages tend 
to be more up to date than commefcial ones, 
since the fornier have no distribution delays and 
can be updated quickly wi^lhouE the nee-d for 
expensrve repacbaging- 

Accessf 

RegirtratJon: SZ5 Cbul see bekiw] 
Lefs start with a package 1 wouldn't recommend, 
despite its very neat presentation *nc( reasonable 
ANSI graphics support. UnfortLnately, the author, 
Keith Voung, seems to hsve disappeared off the 
face of tin* earth, making registration diltficult. 

Atcess! is quite old now, and other programs 
offer more. So saying that, it'i not that had 11 jwu 
already have it, iince it dofii work most of Lfie 
SrTW. 

A-Talk lir 

Ptibished by Quel Inc 
CNstfibiit«d in the UK by HB Mariteting Ltd 
Tel: 0753 6fl£0W 
A-Talk tries to be everything to everyone. It can 
emulate a wide variety of terminals, from the 
slightly tibicure Heath HI 9 through the more 
usual VT100/ANSI emulationi, to the rather spe- 
cialised Tektronics 4014 graphics terminaJ. 



What's hot and what's not. Stewart C Russell 
should know - he's tried them all 



Strangely, only the Tek and Workbench screen 
options support PAL screens; the reit are siiort 
20&^]ine r^fTSC efforts. 

As befits ^ program which will be used with 

mair>frame and BBS connfctions, A-Talk offen ail 
the common file transfer protocols, including 
ZModem snd Kermtt. Facilities for adding more 
prototols are supplied through External Prototol 
(XPfi) library support. 

For such a compretiensive piogramn, it is surpris- 
ing to fmd that there is no way of configuring the 
pacltage to your modem, beyond choosing fnotn a 
imall list of supported hardware. Sin<ce most of tfie 
mcKtems on tlie list hav« been superseded or were 
never approved for use in the UK, you may 
encounter problems if you have an obscure setup 

A-Talk offers the most poweiful script langu^e 
of arty Arrigd commi program. It integrates ARexJt 
with its own cofnnnands, alkjvving data captured 
onlirw to be processed offllrK by other progfams. 
Several e^tamples are provided, including a simple 
BBS and a powedvl remote access system, 

The program is supplied with a very fine man- 
ual, which provides an excellent introduction to 
Communications terminobgy and practice along 
with Clear descriptions of the workings of the sys- 
tem. 

Uniike Other systems, A-Talk is suppfied wrth 
sonoe of the archiving and file maintenance uti^tes 
required for day-to-day BBSing. Unfortunatelj*, the 
very common Lharc archiwer is not included, possi- 
bly tveeause A-Talk was afound before It made an 
appearance on the Amiga. 

A-Talk is a "nearly" program. It is rather sleepfy

ratJief too much to complain about lor that sort of

AZComm 

Free 

Fish Disk 171 

AlComm is very old, and compared to most other 

programsy very basic. It has no phonetx)ok editing 
facilities - a text editor is used instead - no support 
for ANSI graphics, no PflL support and no call lime 
logging either. 

It sounds like if s a turkey. How could anyone 
recommerid it over iomething as pretty as 
Access!? There are two eKttieme^ good reasons. 

Firstly, AZCotnm has a very fast impdementation 
of Zfdodem, This protocol is gertetally regarded as 
the best way of transmitting data across a tele- 
phone line, because it automatically adjusts itself 
to suit varying line rwise conditions. 

Secondly, AZComm is very small as Amiga 
comms programs go, It's around 64Kb long, 
allowing it to frt on a faifty full startup disk without 
dtspladng too many usefui utilities, 

AZComm will certainly be adequate for starting 
out in comms, since it doesn't have too many con- 
fusing options. It was the first piece of comms soft- 
ware I used on the Amig^, and I still rate it highly. 

JR"Comm 1.02a 

Regtitratkin: USS3S 

Most bulletin boards 

)R-Comm is a program shaped by th« requests of 

hundreds <rf BBS users worldwide. Jack fladigan, 
the author, fiai a vflfy definite vis.ian of how the 
program will evolve, and has been known to flatly 
refuse to implement ideas which don't fit in with 
his phikisophy. 

The pragram is designed to be the best for seri- 
003 BeSing with fast modems. Although it will 
emuiate a VTlOO t^rmenal, ifs most at hon>e with 
its full ANSI terminal ernulation, right down to 
mimicking the keytjoand o( an IBM PC. 

jR-Corrim supports the Amiga-specific SkyPiK 
temiinai standard. This allows windows, menus, 
bitmap g^'aphic animations and sampled sounds to 
be used in an online system. It's not quite multi- 
fnedia, but it's (on if ywj find one of the very few 
boards which support it. 

The ZModem adaptive file transfer protocol Is 
supported better than ariy Amiga program. These 
options are set via a large array of gadg^, which 
has a t«ndeni:y to bewilder the new user. 
Perionallyj iit gives me the raving technofear habd- 
abs evefy time. 

At least the documentation isn't too frighten- 
ing, the docuntentitiorf actually amounts to more 



bytes than the program itself, but it'i well written 
and cpntains hinti jnd examples for specific 
modemi. There ii no aspect of the program which 
isn't covered in minute detail, so you won't gel 
lost in JR-Comm if you keep this worhderful manual 
withyoL at all times. 

Unregistered versioni of IR-Cpmrri havf deisy 
screeft^ built in, plus plaintive mess^es are posted 
after 30 days' use, For such a powerful program, 
Ifi-Comm Is very reasonably priced at USt35. 
Thats around £2T in Real JVIoney, or les than: the 
price of one possibly mediocre game, 

JR-ConrMTi doesn't support scripls yet, but a ver- 
sion with this plus ARexx support is in tfie wortts. 
As it stands, it's- an lUfKornpracnising sports nwdel 
of a terminal program - some people won't be 
able to bandle it. 

NCommf.92 

Registration: Ctftwurt 
Most bulletin boardj 
NComm is the sole EuropMn effort \fi this whole 
ovEn;iew. It was originally wrillEn to allow the 
Amiga to support the IBM-Norwegian character 
set, t"Jt tJver time it has matured into whiat has to 
be my favourite tenrinal program. 

The outstanding feature of NComm is its intier- 
nal multttaslung - you can be browsing through 
the jscroliback buffer while Ehe terminal is still 
receiving and displaying information ffom the 
remote system.. You might think that this b of lim- 
ited MM, but once you've tried It, you really can't 
live without it 

negistratiorii h easy and novel - just send the 
authors a gift. The nature of the gift is entirely up 
to you, but it should rdlect the value of the pro- 
gram to you, Hmm, how am I going to past a 
gold brick to NonA^ay,,.? 

The usual protocols are supported, plus any 
extra you may wish to add via XPR library support 
There are known problems with certain versions of 
the XPR ZMnidem library, and NComm is supplied 
with an aid, but serviceable, version. 

There are also problem! with high speed sup- 
port for YModem-G, the fait minima] pnotocoi for 
use with error-correcting modems, Respite tfiese 
proi^lems, I can stilt get momentary bursts of over 
1 900 characlefi per second with ZModem on an 
AiOO and i Courier HST, so if s not slow. 

NComm does have quite a powerful script lan- 
guage, but because it doesn't support ARckk, it 
cannot readily control external programs. It is 
quite powerful enough to write a small BBS sys- 
tem, and one is supplied in script lomn with the 
distribiition archive. 

The latest version of NComm {v^ 32] isn't avafl- 
able outside the BBS fircuit. However, tf>e very ser- 
viceable NComm 1 3 is on Fish Disk 356. The Jater 
version adds better file requesters 9nd fuller sup- 
port for XPR pratocols (including KennitJ piluj the 
ability to change the program's task priority for 
enhanced performance, 

I use NComm \ .92 daily, and I keep hearing 
tales of woe about how it doesn't work on other

people's systems. For once, my ageing and iiirr*- 
times incorrigible A500 works perfectly with a 
piece of "difficult" software, it gets my vote as \he 
best Amiga comms program around, 

VLT 

Fr« 
Rih DIsb 468 £t 455 - both required 

VLT is a special p-urpose comms pragram. It coutd 
be used for connecting to bulletin boards, but ft. is 
really designed for mainframe connections. 

It emulates a DEC VTIOO terminal to i wnry 
high standard, with character graphics ar»d 132 
column operation. It also pretends to be a 
Tektronrcs 4Q14 graphics tenninai, a standard loed 
in n^inframe CAD applications, .right down to co- 
ordinate input using ttw mous«e- 

VlT supports XModem and Kemnil fiJ* tramlef 
protocols, plus any XPR eKtemal potocol Hway - 
so ZModem can ix used if desired. Since the ^rv 
tem is tailored for graphics applications, it an aw 
the screen^ as an IFF bitmap or as PostScript diuc- 
tured graphics. ARexx is fdly supported, iloMing 
the program to be customised to th^ user's piiJu- 
ence. 

In short, if you need to {lonnect to a titgt 
remote computer system, VLT is the program to 4a 
it. it has more features applicable to ItiQ lort of 
usags at a lower cost than ar^ of the other ijr*- 
temis. 

Online! Platinum 

Published by Micro-lyfteim itthwan htc 

Oistributed In the UK by HB Marketing Ltd 

Tet:07Si«8«OOO 

This program can be bought separately, or as p^ 

of The WorVi! Platinum Edition software bunde. If 
you really shop around. The WofttsE can be bought 
far under £80, which offers good vajue lor money. 
Onlinel costs around £40 if bought separateiy, 

which is slill very reasonable. 

Onlinel isn't sure whether it's 3 BBS users pact- 
age or a teciinicai users system. Il offers all the 



t.^i.....a,. ^\40£oCs for good BBSing - including 
the e«tipne^ obscure SADIt protocol, used only 
n M$S poducb - plus it tries lbs hand at VTIOO 
and Tci 401 pnUition , 

tt oilm i very powerful scripting language^ 
«Ah W Atett st^ipod. It isn't quite is powerful 
» ^Tilt'i laipbng language, but it woiild cer- 
taHy be ai3l» to nm a snnail BBS host, or feed cap- 
tmd daia to euemal applications. 

1 1 rwne to pick holes, in Onlinel Platinum, I 
found • vtry tiny irregularity in the eJaborate 
naiaoon sequence. It missHJ out a vital colon in 
•n Aui^n conimand, causing it to faiF, As it 
a|ifKndtd i lo one of yorjr startup files, it would 
hfc* piTtwed the system working in a very sub- 
tle «id may manrter. Once distov«re4 the prob- 
lem Q embamsangly simple to fix - ^l add the 
msvig cflkxv. 

Oninci jitK> manages to look 0I4 somehow - it 
lut di tfw old-style requesters, with none of the 
pmiAhJH WB2.0 kiok Despite the aesthetics, it 
wwte *«■, but a; a stand-^aksne package, MComm 
and JR-Comm offer more for less morbey, if you 
I*s0 wwn the other packages in The Works!, it 
<*«5 uiablr feature; at i very low cost. 

Conclusfon 

So tJwfe vw have it - a brief look at most of the 
Mvig^ cgmms programs. I know I've miss«d out a 
*ew, b«it those chitted are tfte ones 1 have never 
used 

So which one is the winner? For general BBS 
wort. It's a straight fight between JR-Comm and 
NComm. They're pfetly much level on features, 
and thq^ am both top^line pieces of software. 

Since NComm and JR-Comm are shareware, 
ycxj can make up your own mind about which is 
best I prefer NComm; it happens to wqrk the way 
Mike working.

DTP for DTV 



Ifter last month's took ii how you c&n use 
DPaint within your video productions, I 
thought I'd continLe on the theme with a 
look jil i few more paci,flg«s that could make your 
video prodLttions look a lot mofe prolessksnal. 

Rather ttian waffle on endlessly about the more 
obvious programs - presentation systems and 
video titkfi, for example - 1 thought I'd restrict the 
coverage, for the meantirrte, to some ot the mort 
unusual pro^a:ms. 

Believe it or not, niany of the packages that you 
may use for such things as DTP and solid mod- 
elling work can be used for genuinely useful video 
work, You may not think that DTP is Jomethir»g 
that translates 10 video particularly well, but you'd 
be surprised. Alt that '\i needed is a little bft of 
imagination and an unberstanding of the technol- 
ogy available to you, 

One package thai I use s great deal Is Soft 
Logic's excellent PageStreajn 2.1 , Why? WeH, now 
that Page Stream supports CampLgraphic fonts, 
it's idedl for producing titles. 

OK, several video tiller manulacturers are now 
starting to use Compugraphic fonts too, but 
PageStream offers diitinct advantages.. For startera, 
PageStream'i ability to scale fonti s.lmFriy by drag- 
ging them in or out to tJhe required size is a real 
boon. If you've ever tried producing video titles 
using comentiOTHil bitmap fonts, you'll soon start 
to appredate just how useful ^is feature is. 

Unlike bitmapped fonts, Compugraphic fonts 
are scalable, so you can stretch and compress 
them to just about any size without any degrada- 
tion in quality. Even at very small point sizes, 
Compugraphic fonts still look a lot better than 
their brtmapped cousins. 

Obviously the resolution that you ane woriung 
in will degrade the title a little, but Compugraphic 
fonts still manage to look good, even irt low res. 



|ason Holborn shows how PageStream, the desktop 
publishing program^ can be used for video work 




&mm 



Another veiy nice feature of PageSlream is its box 
rotation feature, ProPage rww has this too, btjt 
PageStrcam's box rotation is far nwre powerful. 
It's rvot iust restrkJed to straight box rotation - like 
ProPage - instead^ you can slant and twist fonts, 
which not only fielpjs to add a bit d variety, but 
can also make your tikies look more professional. 

Right, so we've discussed how to manipulate alt 
those lovely Compugraphic fonts, all that now 
remains ts to tum them into something tfiat can 
be used within a video titling, paint or presenta- 
tion system. For this, I use a very powerful littie 
screen grabbing utility called PlcSaver. 

St's a PO program, so there's no excuse whatso- 
ever for not burying yourself a copy of it today. Pic 
Saver is on TBAG disk 56 which is available frwr^ 
AmigaNuts United on 0703 ?a568D. 

PicSaver isn't just a screen grabber though. 
What makes it so special is its ability to grab any 
rectariigular. section of any screen. Simply by hold* 
ing down ttiree hot keys^ you can drag out a bo* 
around a particular section of the screen. When 
you release the mouse button, Piciaver saves the 
graphic block to disk as an IFF file. If you are using 



Amiga Toasters for Mac 



Amiga owners can no tonger look on smugly at 
otfier professiorial computer users with the news 
that Kansas-based NewTek have developed a 
Video Toaster system for the Macintosh. 

The Mac Video Toaster comprises of a black 
box which connects to the Mac via a smart serial 
Interface. Contained within is a\l the usual Video 
Toaster hardware, plus an extra hit of circuitry 
that Mac owners r^ay be rather reluctant to admit 
to - that is, it contains an Anrnga. 

Instead of developing a brand new Video 
Toaster lor the Mac - which is something that 
pfobably wwjidn't eveii' be passible without con- 
siderably mofe circuitry - Newtek have decided 
instead to devefop a stand-alone Video Toaster 
that contains much of the Amiga's custom hard- 
ware. 

The fairly hefty box is basically an Amiga 
B2000 without a keyboanJ, although the software 
side of the Video Toaster is controUed alrrKist 
entirely b>' tfie Macintosh. In reality though, the 
Mac is treated as nothing mone than a dumb tef- 
mirval, with all the hard work handled by the 



Ajniga itsetf, so we Amiga ownefs c^ stiH retain a 
certain amount of smugness. 

Also on the Video Toaster front NewTek hai* 
released version 2 of the Video Toaster, Uttte ww 
known about this new release at the tinw of 
going to press, although sources close to the 
company revealed that the new Video Toaster 
offer! double the resolution ol the originri ToSMr 
plui much improved software. The new soltMn 
offers, many more video effects, fihis a lot more 
besides. 

There's sUH no news ol the PAL Video Toaster 
which Is definitely ^tiing iiheiid NewTek m: tak- 
ing in t^fms of about a year, idthough 1 Mouk^t 
be sufprised if it tcwlc considenbiy tonger. 

The CUnWTt Vkteo Toaster is bed vsy closely to 
the ptcuHarities ol the HTSC vfldeo system, work- 
ing around Joop holes to produce itj effects. 
Producing a PAl version would also certainly 
require a totil r^hini;, so don't hold your breath 
for thii one. 

Rest assured though, f'll t3e bringing you a hil 
review ai soon as a PAL Video Toaster appears.

Hie DPaint The demo image stwwn elsewhere on 
tMs page w« created using nothing more than 
^aqtSbt^n and i copy of DPaint 3 

I'm mre youll »griee that it looks a iot nicer 
Ttiifi the Ivid d ejects that are obtainable using 
conKcntiwiaf bUmapped fonts. It's also worth not- 
ng that fyt put a 2 pt»el black border around the 
igraphic. As discussed last month, this helps to 
nwimafac cokur bleeding wf>en the image is laid 
dcHMi qn to videQ tape, 

PageStream isn't the only package that can be 
used far video hwork. Another very fine DTP pro- 
gram that I use ei^tensively is Gold Disk's 
MlBSional Draw 2,0. 

Prol^aw handles all its graphics In structured 
farm^ tfwvfore they can be twisted aftd stretched 
iMthout any ioss of image quality. Fonts are partic- 
ularty well handled in ProDraw, although I must 
ai^Tiit that tfie results don't always look as good as 
they do within PageStream, 

Tfwse of you with unexpanded Amigas may 
find the going a tiit tough when you start playing 
around with large sections of graphic like those 
used withifi the screen shown. If yOu can afford it, 
rt realty is worth 't to buy a ram ^pansion of at 
least 2Mtb, 

Even better, get your machine converted - in 
the case of the A500 - to wort with the new ECS 
Agnus. This new chip, which is now installed inside 
all new Amigas, allows you to use up to a 
megabyte of chip ram, which can lie very useful 
indeed for this kind of worl*. 

Anyway, that's enougih for now. I'll leavt it to 
you to li^nd even mone way^ of using packages likie 
PageStream. If you do come up with a particularly 
good idea, why not write in and let me know?

MACHINE CODE 



How to 



Keeping scores and other info in a fast-moving 
game requires some fast code, 
Margaret Stanger has the answers 



Thii month's Machine Code is -all about 
the display on h Koreboard arid there is s 
fully worl^ing program on the CoverDisk 
that demonstratB these tectiniques. 

Titere are several ways to put the empty score- 
board on the screen. II the sconeboafd ii fairly sinv 
pl«, it coukj be generated by drawing into the 
rastfiorL This Saks up no extra space on itie disic 
prin the pragfam, 

The disadvantage is that drawing lines and 
colouring in rectangtes can be rather time con- 
5Ju>niing, even for an Amiga, 

The scorebaard could be generated by an art. 
program like [^eluKsPaint, stored on disl^ and read 
in whenever the scoreboard is to be deared. The 
design can be more elaborate, perhaps even a 
pcksh scoreboard cksigrted by an artist, 

If the program has enough free memon^, the 
scoreboard picture can be read into a bitmap in 
memQry, stofed there djring the pnagram nin, and 
copied to the screen when needed. Usually I prefer 
this meEhod twit there is oo hard and fast nuJe. 



Status symbols 

To add vahetj', iomefimes a gameplayer's status 
can be displayed irt picture form. Usually the small 
number d lives teft is Shown pictorial ly. 

Time used and damage Sustained are often dis- 
played as an increasing line. Available weapons, 
energy, health ind stamina can be a line that 
decreases depfe&sir^ly (|uic3tly. These Sines can be 
updated with a dot in the foreground or back- 
gound colour very quicMy, 

The demonstration program shows decreasing 
energy and increasing time. To keep track of th* 
passage of time, a green fH:tangle is slowly built 
Lp until It fills the rectangle. This is tione by draw- 
ing an extr? line every (ew ganw cycles. 

Tfte decrease in energy is done by adding Mad: 
lines, and malang the energy nectangle smaller. 

The yvrhiitg on the wall 

For text and numbers that vary durir>g the game, 
the graphics library text routines can be used, i 
find thij process nther too slow lor a fait moving 
game that needs its scores updating quite often. 
Instead \ keep a copy of my system or designer 
font in picture form in memory. 

The denioostratton program reads in a DPaintll 
320 X 256 4 C-itpfane picture called fontpic. This 
contains both the blank scoreboard and the font. 

I use the Bit^ittvlap command to copy the text 
from memofy to the screen. The letters are not 
copied very otten, so I have used a routine tfiat 
puts a nfiask of ttie ietler on tfie bacliground Tirst, 
then the letter in tfie chosen colour. This coold 




easily be adapted for multicoloored letters. The 
fiqutine to display the numbers is siightiy difleitnt 
As tfie rtum't)^^ are updated fairly often, I fceep i 
copy o! the number and its backgound, so that It 
can tie copied lo the screen in one oper^tiofi. 

To maike life easier, 1 have written a smiS nju- 
tine to displaj' a chosen text string, or string of 
numberSL

play, but useless for sums. 

Whenever the scoreboard is updated tlw ico«

sure that the scofe does not overflow the

How the program works 

The (feiptay is initialised and the blank n^oreboard 
and tent ai? read in Irom the disk. The text is put 
in place, and the initial energy displayed. Each 
game cycle is counted. Wh?n the number of garrte 
CfCiti reaches the chosen rate then energy is 
deocased and time increased. 

When a key is pressed down, tfke kieycode is 
sICMied. If the key is a number between zero and 
nine, it is disfrfayed as a number and added to the 
SBsm. Key eeteases and most letters are ignored. 

The program exits when the energy runs out, or 
Q is pi«3ed. The numbers will hawe been echoed 
to ifie calRing CLi wlndov^, Press Return, or delete 
dicK numbers to continue. 



COMIMG SOOM. . . Next month I hope to 
demonstrate a little hardware programming.

MUSIC 



A great 




Does the release of SunRize's Audition 4 mean the 
end for AudioMaster? |ason Holborn finds out 



For yiiars now, Aegii/Oxju's AudioMaster 
sample editar his ruled the sampling 
vtavei. Wfth its ultra-friendly user ifvtef- 
face and pow/e^ul editing opticmi, AudtoMaitef 
lias lemained the sampling fanatic's favourite- 

D«pite the fact that A&gis have only r«;:ently 
started bjndiJog the program with a sampier, vir- 
tually aii serious iampier Uiers chooie 
AudioManter over the iampte editors bundled 
with their lampling hardware. 

I rewntly received a review sample of 5unRize 
lndustri«' Audition 4, Billed as the program that 
"carries on where AudioMaster i left off, 
SunRize are certain^ maklTig brave daims. Does 
it live up to them? 

Sound choice 

Sunftize have optimized Audition 4 to work with 
their own Perfect Sourtd I iampier, although it 
also Supports a number of other samplerSi Includ- 
ing Perfect Sound 1 and 2, Sound Master and a 
generai purpose Generic optiori. If you own a 
sampler that isn't directly su-ppprted, th«n it's 
worth trying both the SoundMajter and Generic 
settings to see which works best with your kit 

One surprising omiisision Is the lack of support 
for high speed sampler like fiamScan's excellent 
Audio Engineer, These will work perfectly well 
with the Sound Master setting, but they won't be 
used to their full tapa£ity. 

Once you've told Audition 4 wfiith sampler 
you are using, you're ready to get down to some 
s«f>ouf sampling. 

Play away 

lipon loading, you'll notite that tiie Audition 4 
screen is split into two distinct areas. At the top 
of the screen ii the usual display which plots your 
sample in graphical format adow thii ii a selec- 
tion o1 gadgets which allow you to carrj out all 
the basic functions including Play Waveform, 
which plays the entirt sample held in memDiyj 
Play Display, which only plays the area of sampte 
currently being displayed; and Ptay Range, which 
plays a marked range. There are also gadgets 
which allows you to zoom in and out of the sam- 
ple and turn loopir>g on and off. 

Audition 4's Zoom function is particularly 
impressive, Most sample editors - including 
AudioMaster 5 - require you to mari out a range 
which the software instantly jumps to when you 
click loom. 

Hovffivr, the zoom fynclion is considerably 
more scphisticated than this. Instead of jymping 
straight to the madted range, Auditron 4 jooms 
in on it, increasing the amount of magnification 
until the desired range is fully diiplayed. It's a lit- 
tle tike using a zoom lens on t camera. All the 



rest of the Audition 4 functions must be selected 
from the pull-down menus, with extra gadgets 
appearing at the bottom of the screen wherever 
a function is selected. The first function that you 
will want to play with is the sampler sectian, » 
we'll take a look at thatfirsL 

Sample city 

Audition 4 fully supports both mono and itereo 
lampling when used with a compatible samptef. 
Those like Sound Trap 3 Of MasterSound won't 
allow for stereo sampling, so you'll need sonw- 
ttiing like TedinoSound, AMAS or SoundMasler 
to grab stereo sound. 

The sampler section Is split into a number □( 
gadgets, wtikh allow you to alter the sample rate, 
monitor the incoming sound source and finally 
grab a sample- 
Surprisingly, you can't dynamically control frie 
size of the sam^ple, instead^ Audition 4 tries to 
allocate a much contiguous memory as possibte. 
When you set the sample rate, it then tells you 
how long Che sample will be in secoitds, A SUk 
Amiga will grab five seconds viforth when sam- 
pling at ttie majdmum rate. 

Depending on which sampier you are using, 
you can grab at up to 55 KHz. However, these 
really aren't a great deal ol use, as the vast major- 
ity of sample-compatible music packages om't 
handle samples at this kind of rate. 

The Amiga's own DMA sample playback hind- 
ware only supports rates of up to 29 KH2, so irf i 
best to restrict sampling to these rates, 

One very nice feature is Audition 4's abfUf to 
record samples direct to floppy disk, allowing yow 
to produce your own sample demo disks. Rk 
the. Audition 4 uses its own high sp«d ciffitflm 
disk format and then tacks a player progrirn on 
to the boot Mock of the disk. 

As 3 result, the oflly way of playing bai* If* 
sample once recorded to disk is to boot from the 
floppy that it is stored on. This is p«typs i ittte 
too limited for serious y$e. 

I'm surprised that SunRiie didn't bi^ in i 
facility to allow direct recording to h*rd dU^ so I 
guess we're going to have to wait for SunRoe's 



n«w Studio H softwif* which is bundled with 
their new 12 and 1 6-brt iMnfiing cards- 

AU the usual editing funciioni are there, and 
3rt accessed by first lelectirsg an ajea of sample 
usin^ the mouse and then cBcking on the appro- 
pftate option from rhe pull-down menus. You can 
cut areas of sample, ,fopy and then paste areas of 
lam^, zero marked ranges, insert sections and a 
k}t more besides. 

Even moft Mierefting are Audrlion 4's spedaf 
editing functions which include: Mit^, which 
mixes bM» lamplR together; Echo, which adds 
echo to i marked range; Fade, which fades out 
a marked range; Flange, which adds a sort of 
'viwbly" ettect Kq a sample; Filter, which filters 
out specified trequ«ncies; Smooth, which takes 
out higher ftequHKies; Ma»imise, which boosts 
cerUfn frequencies; and Lift Treble and ftass, 
wtikch lift ih* treble and bass of the sample 
respectntiy. 

Mjny 0t these operations ts ttiat they can be 
pmwwed beiore you commit yourself. This way, 
you can control the effect ol the operations 
dynamiufty, allowing you to get your sample 
louraing ju^ righL 

Conclusion 

B^eaust AudHon 4 is such a complex program It 
«*oild be jtngiit impossible to cover every aspect 

ti the prognrrt within this single piqe. Suffice it 
» tay that wtually evefything that can be done 
w«(hin AudioMaiter 1 can also be done within 
AwAtion 4. This includes sequenced loops, wavi- 
foiTn turang and much more besides. 

It is without doubt one of the most compre- 
hei!we sample editors available for the Amiga, 
t'm not quite sure whether I'd stop using 
AudoMoster 3 altogether in favour of Audition 4, 
but I'd most centainly have Audition 4 at hand 
¥*t»ne«f I wanted to apply certain effects to a 
sompde. 

There's no escaping the fact that Audition 4 is 
a very capable system indeed. For the price, it 
represents extremely good value for money. So if 
yog are after a sample editor, check out Audition 
4 first, You vvon't be disappointed.

Entertaininent software \i big business now, 
and people have to be a little bit more cre- 
ative 10 produce a gocxJ game, something 
which can t* distinctiv diffeienit to a good sdler! 
Hopefjlfy Amoi will help you to spend a lot more 
of your tinw estercbing these creative energies. 

One important thing to remember about 
games software is that a lot ol progrannmers cheat 
We have covered different methods of "chealang'' 
in previous issues. Some ol the most amazing 
effect! seen in games are, in fact, merely illusion - 
screen swapping, colour cycling and palette 
switching are just some of the ways to get anwz- 
ing results without tompromiiing the speed of 
your pTogram. 

Almost anybody can use tJwie methods, but 
the resi still is in integrating them with Itie soft- 
ware so that they are invisible to the player, while 
at the lame bme making hirri or her think "wow, I 
wonder how they did ttw*?". 

OK, the first step in any piec« of software is to 

set up yoor screen, we've done all of this before - 

\i you missed it then buy the back issues - so I 

wor^'t take yon through all of the old ctetalls again: 

' Ui ui 

curs Aff 

iet ifiUt fiUttf 
toubtc Biifffr 

Mow we fiave the task of initiaiismg all of tf>e vari- 
abiles that we will use. Althoiigh Amos - and most 
other versions of Basic for that matter - does not 
require you to do this, it: is a habit you should get ■ 
into. After all, you won't be usirtg Amos forever, 
will you? 

We will need to keep track of the X and V posi^ 
lion of our character, so we will use two variabtes 
called X_GOOD arid Y COOD. As wdl as storing 
the position of our ctiaracter the joystick status will 
have Id be Stored, so we will call that variable 
WAY: 

Of course we will also need ta move the bad guy 
around, so we will call 111 X and ¥ coordinates 
X_BAD and V.BAD: 

lJJlD-0 

TJJID=0 

Finaify we may want tn introduce individual speeds 
for each of the characters in tt»e game, so we will 
tall these - guess what? - G0OD_SPEED and 
BAD_S'PtED. Notice that by ijsing meaniingful vari- 
able names we can tdl a glance what a pankular 
section of code is doing, but be careful of falling 
into the trap of ending up with variable names 10 
charactfrs long - tfiey can be a real drag to type 
in! 

im iPtED^i 

Ohhhh, I almost forgot This game is very simple 

and because d tfiii it is going to be btindfngly fast, 
so in order to slow it down we will only update 
everything occasionally. It sounds strange I know, 
but all will betomfl clear very soon. 
The variable we Mt going to use to control this 



Peter Hickman shows you how to fit 
the bits into something playable 



is calfed T ~ or timef - and the variable used to 
hold the score is called SCORE: 

T-1 

Now we have to stick the pl^er and the bad ^ 
on to ttK icmn. For tJiis example program we are 
using BOBs, but you could use hardware SPRfTB: 

Now for the main part of the qitne: , 

iE)i«at 

The first line here tells the program that we onfy 
want to execute eveiything inside ttie IF structure 
when the variable T has a vaiue of two At the 
moment it only have a value of one: 

Our nejtt task is to check the joystick to s«e if a 
movement has been made. We will use the jOYQ 

fun'Ction rather than the |UP/JDOWN functions, 
because it is more versatile. A fuller esplanatiflo as 
to why ttiis is will be given in tfie next issue. 

We store the curent joystick value - whicti is » 
number between and 1 6 - in the variable WAY, 
if WAV tias a vai'ue greater than zero then we Itnow 
tftat tfie joystick is being moved, and we can then 
test ttie direction and move our character; 

It wr>» 

At this point we know tfat oor man has nxrved so 
we can increase the score by one; 

ini am 

Now comes the joyitkk testing bit. In a pre^rfous 
issue we saw how the |OY0 bnction retiimj vafcjet 
depending on how it K currently positioned, just 
to recap, these are the vatues for the foHjr basic 
dite>ctions; UP=1 , DOWfJ^2, LEFT=4, RIGKT^ 

Knowing this we can see if the player wants to 
move the tharacter and so can increase/deoeaie 
tfie X_GO0D/Y_GOOD variabla accordingly: 

If VIlT^E 

Ui I im,im 5PEEI,Q T« Slf

If HX=li

End If 

It MN . , .^ 

ui r EDes,-»i«i SPEEI,S U m 
'E[>d If 

Mi r («»i,iD«i init,t u 1ft 

N If ' 

Another trick when wTitirig a gamt is not to 
update anything ofi the screen unless it has 
moved, l=or this reason we will only redraw our lit- 
tle character vwhen tfie j^^stick has been moved: 

Here is a tricky question, with a very simple 
answer. How do you make a nasty horrTe-4n on 

your good guy? We!l, imagine you were playing a 
game where you had to ain after soniebody. The 
brain wQuJd foUow a sirnpie set of niles, lyke: "If the 



person is to th* Seft o( me, i must move telt," arwJ, 
'i the person u in front of me I rnust move for- 

wtaid.* 

Ttveie JIT* the simple ryles w« can follow to 
make a fwrner'. Of course most gan>es have a 
dighljy longer hst of rules to control movement of 
bad guys ar^ good guys, but at the end ol the 
day ih^ mt sti only a list of niles that the pro- 
-am mutt folow. 

I «n sure you harve played many games, wtwre 
^ter a whie you realise that H you pertonm a cer- 
tain action at a certain point, you can make ttie 
progran do ihe :ume thing almost ev«ry tini(;. 
Ififi ii bKJUse it is just following a set of simple - 
or coit]|3icaliMJ - mles: 

II I EtODd Hi 
tlSf 

kii 1 aiiii,B«D sPEEt 

tmtH 

If r H4B(t ut 

iii T ul.^m mil 

Elll 

IM T UiMl JFItD 
[•4 If 

At this point we update tfie position of ttie bad 
guy and increaie the value of the variable T. 
Rcfnemiber that the ADD statement below has 
been written » that the number will wrap around 
fttmt 1 tD2: 

Iftt 1,1 1»,1 SAD, 2 

As iw ttawt seen earlier, to slow tfie game down 
wc only update characters every second time we 
go ttvDugh thie loop- If the value of T is not 2 the 
p rog r a m will just e.i(e<cute the next couple of lines 
and giQ back to the beginning: 

lilt 

lidil T,1,1 Til 
Eld If 

Finally, we must set a stop condition on the 

REPEATAJNTIL bop. In this case the program will 
stop if BOB number one collides with any other 
BOB. If a collision is detected yOur SCOre K printed 
and the game ends! 

Mtil Bob [Aim

The game is on the cC)veidisk for those wtio want 
to tiy it ouL How long can you run around avoid- 
ing the nasty invader type beastie?. Why not 
experiment a little bit and see if you can add more 
bad guys and perhaps objects to collect, flefone 
long you could be writing the foNow up to 
Uamatron! 

Finally, do not try to compile the game unless 
you slow it ctowHj because it will end up impossi- 
bly fast! 

Flemeinber that no piece of software is Tlxed, 
and ir you do not like something about a game 
you write then change it! 

Oh well, that's about it for this month. But 
don't worry, I'll be back!

CODE CLINIC 



Shortcu 



Thii mofith's Code Clinic is all about oikig 
requesters and gadgets in a program to 
communicaEe with the oatside world. 
When I am writing pnogfams ir any language, I 

try to build up a library of ioftwane routiri*! w 
that I do not nwd to neirwent the wheel f(jr enreiy 
new pngject. 

The software on the support disk demonstrate 
requestefs and several diflerent gadgets from rny 
tollection, with a runnable program and fully 
dfKurrented source tode, 

Automatic 

Intuition praivides AutoRequest. This fynction will 
display a two gadget ra^uester with tert of your 
tiwn chiHSing. 

This command worts well, but I prefer to have 
more control pver the requester dcHgn ttian the 
AutoRequpst command gives me. The mouse 
pointer can disappear if it wanders out of Uiii 
automatic requester atea. 

Gadgetry 

1 decided to mate my own generic requester, and 
give It ftt own window arid choice of gadgets. In 
the demo program the wintiow and gadgets are 
plain but graphics could easily be copied into the 
bitmap or drawn into the rastport. 

AH that the window needed was a pointer to 
its first lnturre»(t stnjctune fof its little warning, or 
chunii of information, and a code to mdicate 
where to find Its first Gadget. The IntuiTeJd struc- 
ture contains all the InfonnatiDn for a piece of 
text, irKluding a pointer to the next tent.

The first requester, code ^ , has one gadget with 
teitt "OK". When this is pressed, the window will 
close- A second type of requester, code 2, has 
text and a "yes" or "no" selection; the window 
only closes if "no" is chosen. 

Tlw third requester, code 3, is more dignified, 
with a choice between Cancel and Continue. 
These fcirds of requestsfs are used for informa- 
tiort, warnings, aind when confirmation is 
required liwn the user. 

The fourth requester ij«s a string gadget to 
input some text. This gadget is linked to the 
Cancel and Continue gadgets, so these appear as 
well. This is invoked by the gadget namwl String

DTP 






Colourful tal 



I\ might have jjst been the imcike and the 
difti lights, hut l prefer xo think it was a ques- 
tion of colOLirspaces wFien HKola accused 
me in the pjb last nig hi of wearing white socks. I 
wasn't, cA course - even I have my standards^ andi 
they were canary yellow - but there's always 
room for disagre«nient when it comes to colcmr, 

We all knaw that people see colours differ- 
ently. There's not much we can do about this, 
but jis certain colksurs are univeruilly regarded as 
disgusting and Olivers as lovely-lovely, we can 
assume that there's some consensus. 

Trouble arises wfien wf try to define a cdaur 
precisely, in tenms more mathematical than the 
Autumnal Beige and Sunset Orange beloved of 
paint manufactorerj, And, of course, defining 
colours precisely is just what we have to do when 
we pyt them an a DTP page, 

There are two ■common methods of colour 
definition, sometlfines called coburspaceij some 
times called colour systems, In fact, a trje 
colourspace such as X¥Z is a rather nntone abstnuse 
thing, of concern at the moment orily to the 
optical physicists, but why maJte an i-ssoe Impene* 
trable when it's already complicated? 

Two choices 

These two methods are CWf {Cyan, Magenta, 
YeHlow), and the more familiar RGB (Red, Creen, 
Bige) - familiar because it's the colour system 
used in TVi and all computer monitors. 

The RGB system is called "addiitive colour* - 
that is, combine red green and blue snd you get 
wtilte. CMY is called "sublractive colour^ - take 
all three elements away and you get white, add 
them together and you get black. 

Unfortunately, RC6 is not used in conventional

printingi where CMY^ or "process cobur^, is th* 
nonn. Most colour laser printers, Inkjet printers 
and dye-sub(imation printers, as well as image- 
setters - in fact anything mofe advanced than the 
dot matrix printer - work on the CMV rrrodeL 

A roll of paper on the- press has each of these 
inks printed in turn, building up an almost infinite 
variety of colours in their combination. 8ul ifs 
the translation between these two colo<ur syv 
tems, RGB and CMV, which cdn causf difficuHiei 
for the desktop publisher. 

In the CMY model, colours are specified as 
percentages. For instance, a warm red is jsuaily 
achieved through a combination of 1 0O per cent 
- or solid - magenta and yellow, and this wouid 
be specified as lOQM lOOY. A rather queasy 
green might be achieved by cOrnbiriing yeliOw 
and cyan in the the proportions 40C 60¥'. 

In tact printing presses, aiong with colour 
lasers and Inkjet printers, use a fourth blach ink 
rather than combining CMY to produce black, 
hence the moniker CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, 
Yellow, and blacK, or Key depertdir>g on whom 
you listen to). 

[designers sometimes add a bit of another 
colour to the Wack to produce a richer effect, but 
the separate black makes economic sense, other- 
wise black-and-white jobs would, effectively, be 
three-coiocir jobs. 

Nearly all colours can be reproduced using the 
CMY system, but special effects, such as glittering 
gold, require special inks calEed Pantones, manu- 



Scrven rtpresentatiatti 



factund by a company of the same name, There 
vt fww 1,012 Pantones as/ailaWe - tlie number 
has, recently been increased - and the company 
Hfjpiies designers with a book of samples, show- 
ing wfiat «ich Pantone looks like on both coated 
artd UTKoated paper. 

Only simulated 

The ciesigner then specifies the required Pantone, 
and the paper go€s through a fifth stage on top 
of CMYK, in which this Pantone ink is applied. An 
increasJr>g number of DTP applicatJons allow the 
us*r to specify Pantones, but because special inki 
are fequired they can't be printed on computer 
printers, only simulated, and then ^ome-times 
pretty badly. Moreover, the weird and wonderful 
attributes of Pantones mean their screen display 
ij hr removed from the reality. 

Even with simple CMV printing, problems arise 
in the software conversio-fii between the RGB and 
CMY models - in the limitations of monitors, 
whiiCh can rardy produce the sanie fine grada- 
tions of colour as ttie CMY process, and the dif- 
ferent reflective qualities of screens and paper, fis 
Nicc»la found oirt with those socks, colour is, at 
best a subjective thing.

MULTIMEDIA 



What's on 



Even though the CDTV has not been or 
sale for long, there are now over 60 
titJes avaitabie, fanging from Lemmingi 
to the iHustiited Holy Biblte. 

I have now had the chance to look at quite a 
few of the earlj' releases on COTV, i&me of which 
|'v»e perused in greater detail than othets. 

Although some of the titles are vefy imprei- 
sive, unfortunately moit seenn to have been 
rushed for early felease, Sut with the launch of a 
new product like CDTV this is inevitable, 

Tfw first products I looked at were iLemiTiingi 
and the Hutchinsons Encyclopedia, These come 
fret with the CDTV in the UK, 

Lemmings 

Lemmings, from Psygnosis, is fun. If you havenl 
played the Amiga version of this classic game; 
you've missed oot on a. real gem. it involves try- 
ing to guide i, group of fnindless creatures from 
one side of a level to the ottier while avoiding all 
sorts of traps and dead-ends. Really addictive 

ituff 

The CDTV verskjn is almost identica.1 to that on 
the Amiga. The only change is that two player 
made has been removed - because the CDTV 
comes with only one controller - and the "B" 
button now pauses the lemmings so you tan 
move the cursor to select an icon. This doesn't 
min the gameplay because the clock is stiM lic1(- 
ing down in tine corner. 

The CDTV version of Lemmings comes with a 
bonus animation for a possible futune Psyginosb 
gtame called Planetfatl. it's i v&y long, ray traced 




rjjcniirJj,!. -Jiii- * long tirvf alttra ittort carter 

animation ai a ruluristic [et fighter flying over a 
fractal landscape, chasing and finally destroying a 
cruise missile. 

If Psygnosis' cliaim - that they will have an 
interactive game with graphics tike tflil - is to be 
believedj the CDTV will have some amaJiiing soft- 
ware for it by this time next year. 

Hutchinsons Encyclopedia 

The Hutjchinsons Encyclopedia is, unfortunately, 
pretty poor despite the fact that it no doubt 
holds a iot of entremely interesting infomatiofl, 
with over 20,000 entries on subjetts ranging 
from Aldto to Zygote. 

flrowsing for entries is particularly awkward, 
involving selecting each letter in turn from an A 
60 Z list at the bottom of the screen, much like 
the method for entering high scores for games. 

Once you have selected the first letters of ttie 



lolyon Ralph with the word on some 
of the early CDTV releases 




Captala Kiti'i tlve ytar miaktn earHinuti rtmjug* rhif i4-ba warid of the Harin^ 



inifter 



entry yoo are searching foi, you get a list of pas- 
sible entries a,t the top of the screen. For exam- 
piCj entering "COMIVIOD'' gives entries for 
"Commodity" and "Commodus, Lucius Aelius", a 
pretty unfemarkabie Roman Emperor. There is no 
entry for Commiodore, you will notice, and nd- 
ther is there an entry tor CDTV. 

The main problem with Hutchinsons h that it 
is dfeadfulty boring. Tfiflfe are a few still photos, 
and snatches of digitiied audio, but it still leeis 
iilie it belongs in a reference library, 

Multimedia is meant to malie things fun, but it 
hasn't wofted for Hutchinsons. M a free disk if s 
OK, but it's certainly not worth the £49.99 th^ 
would have been selling It separately for. 

24-bit art 

Everybody seems to be talking about 24.bit 
graphics nowadays. Tfwre has been an eKploiion 
of cards and add-on bo^es providing aU lorti of 
estra graphics modes for evpry Amiga and to sM 
almost every pocket 

Ranging from the £293 HAM-E to the £1^500' 
Harlequin board, these products have one ^- 
pose: to provide better quality grspHics on (he 
Amiga. 

But these boards aiso have one mafiK <*»»- 
back: they are ail completely incorrjiaaile. To 
make things worse Commodore wM, no doubt, 
Mon launch their A2410 graphics boatd to the 
Amiga iOQQ and 30O0- At the frwnint iMi onty 
works under Unix, so don't expKt 'A too soon. 

Untii one of the pr&ducti estafjlisho itseif as; 
the standafd yoo won't Hnd much strftware that 
will support these products. In Amencj a stan- 
dard appears to be emerging - which, unfortu- 
nately, is pfobaWy the least technically capable of 
all of ttie options^ Digital Creations DCTV. 

Commodofe even appear to be backlog this as 
the oMicia'l 2^-bit up-grade for CDTV, At the 
moment OCTV is ^fTSC only, so it won't work on 



Europ«an PAL systems. A PAL version is being 
wKMkibd oa but it won't be here for a white. 

The Video Toaster also has a 24 -bit-quality dis- 
pljy, and yet again, this is i^SC-oniy, with a PAL 
vefvon « kiftq way off. The Video Toaster has 
proved nvneroKly popular in the States: already 
thud party softwafe and hardware is being writ- 
ten fbr the Toasts. 

Afl of these add-ons - with the exception of 
the higlher resolution boards like the Hadequin, 
and tf» ToastH, which is much nwre than Just a 
21-bit cird - may be rendered obsolete 
DvcfnigiiC i Commodore release the new super- 
QiharKed chipset they are rurrwured to be work- 
ing on Thin will have DCTV/HAM-E quality 
griphica buiit-in to the Amiga chips. 

WKich one? 

So, wHih two possible official enhanced coEour 
opbons Itom Commodore, and the success of the 
- ctnwitly - NTSC-only DCTV and Video Toaster 
III the Slates, which do software developers 
choose to support? 

In the Stitej moit software that lupports 24- 
be Raphes directly uses the OCTV box, HAM-E 
and DCTV have an advantage in that their 
qraphic modes allow most software that can dls' 
p(i^ IFF niagei - like slideshow programs, Can- 
Do, AmigaVision and even Amos - to display 
ItK^ 24-bit images di redly, 

Most software developers are waiting for a 
standard to develop. OeluKe Paiint IV from 
Electronic Arts, for example, does not support 
any 24-bit graphics board. 

Within a year a standard for 24-bit will have 
developed. At the moment it looks iike DCTV and 
Video Toaster - since they worik well together - 
will become the leaders in the States, with the 
HAM-E board being the best seller in Europe, Of 
course, who knows what new products will 
emerge in the ncJit few nionth>i?

In 1989 Western Europeans threw away over 128 million 

printer ribbons. They weighed over 9,000 tonnes in total 

and would reach right around the world if laid end to end. 

A used ribbon cartridge is being thrown away somewhere in 

the UK every second of every day. 

You can help put an end to this environmental waste and 

save some money at the same time thanks to RE-iNKf a 

revolutionary new spray which brings new life to exhausted 

fabric printer ribbons. 

RE-INK is cost effective and simple to use. Simply open up 

your plastic ribbon cartridge, spray a lew squirts of RE-lNK's special ir>k and lubricant formula 

and your ribbon is good as new - sometimes even better!

ProFliaht 





ght IS ttte most reaiisnc military f ligl 
simulator for the home computer, based on the 
Tornado fighter which has just seen front line 
action Ln the Persian Gulf. 

Feel the excitement of being at the seat of a jet 
capable of climbing to 30,000 feet in less than two 
minutes and test your skill at firing deadly missiles 
during dog fights with enemy jets. 



Unlike other programs. ProFlight doesn't forget its primary role as a 
simulator and its secondary job of being a shoot-^em-up, made accurate by 
using exact flight equations to mathematically model the flight of the aircraft 
and its missiles. 



You are tested at everything real pilots face eac h day but helped in your task 
with a comprehensive manual 
written by a Tornado expert.

The sad fart ii some newsagents don't 
carry eroLgli copies of your favourite 
Amiga magarine (boo hisi!). 

Perhaps the easiest first coLPSe of 
aclior vwijid Ise to snip out the form on 
this page and hand il to your newsagent 
If Ehat dkKsn't wori, send the tJfiU in! 




Behind the scenes 

There is iKithing quite as occasional as i 
Plocli LofasJier series. In this latest voyage 
through the unknown we are taking 
yog, the humble Amiga owner, behind 
the scenes erf some of the most power- 
ful institutions in the land- 

We are starling off with 1 7-bil 
Software, those really rtice guys who 
gave their entife library away to one of 
our readers last morth. That priie i$ 
going to take a lot of disk dupkation 
and these are the guys to do it? When 



Two disk or 
not to di$k? 

Our nwre obiervanl teaden will have 
miic^ ibree thingi. fintiy, the Ami^a 
Computing kigo tooki tfkikntly Hi ihh 
month, secondly OKfe is on/y one peM 
of ploitk ielhioped to the tofi^f and 
probably most irnportontly, we ore a 
meagre LZ.99 again. 

What did you ihink o! owr doubSe 
fHik issues? Oo you think a uiabie demo 
of comrnerdai software ii worth she 
exlni 76p we charged? 

tike th? extra charge or rtot, il hos 
given us- an idea far a competition. 
What we wonl you to do ii write dbiwi 
ten thifigi yw can cfo with 76p. TTw/ 
can bf funny, dever, damsnghl boring 
even, but we are interested to Icnow 
how 7^p ivwjW change yOtir iife. 

iend your en fries lo ?6p, ftczk 
iobltet 42, Airvga Computirtg, Et/mpa 
Mouse, Adlington Park, Mocdesfieid, 
SKiO 4NP. 

You had best deduct 24p from Ihe 
76p in order ta pay for a stamp. The 
best entries will win a "suitable' phie. 



you are tucked up in bed reading Viz, 
think of these guys pointing and click- 
ing through the night. 

Any other PO companies who want 
to send in mug shots are more than 
weltome to do 40, We might even print 
them.

The neKl action piKkcd instalment 

of 4Cwlll he in the shops on 

Thursday 7 November, 1991. You 

tjn't afford to miss il> 



Now you too 

GcaiDo! 

Yyp, it's a fair copi Many thanks to 
everyorte vi+io wrote in to tell us there 
was a problem with iasl month's 
CanDo giveaway. 

I won't bore you with loo many 
details, but basically IMOVAtronics, 
the people who make CanOOf left a 
coupte of small but important files off 
the disk. 

Why didn't we notice i hear yoti 
scream! Well, ojr tJtorial was written 
using a iully working version of CarvDo, 
Why? because we couldn't hang on 
for the toverdisk master to arriwe from 
the Stales before we started putting 
the magaiine togetlwr. 

Anyway, in twe Ami^o Compuimq 
fashion v« have put everything, right 
this month, In the utilities drawer of 
this month's cowerdisk you will find a 
CmDo icon. Point and diet to add the 
missing files to your CanDo collection.

Get the most out of your Amiga by adding 

^^^^omplete Colour Solution 

The Worlds ultimate creative leisure product for your 
Amiga. Capture dynamic higli resolution imagies into 
your Amiga in less than one second- 

Images can now be grabbed from either colour 
video camera, home VCR or ir fact any still video 
source The traditional method ot holding three 
colour filters in front of your video camera is certainly 
a thing of the past. Because Vidi splits the RGB 
colours electronicaiiy there are no focussing or 
movement problems experienced by some of our 
slower competitors. Lighting is also less o1 an issue 
as light is not being shut out by lens filters. Put all 
this (ogethsr with &n already proven Vidi- 
Amiga/VidiChrome combination and achieve what 
is probably the most consistant and accurate high 
quality 4096 colour images ever seen on the Amiga. 

The colour solution is fully compatible with ail 
Amiga's from a standard A500 to the ultimate A3000- 
No addittanal RAM is required to get up and running, 

Yoj will see from independant review 
comments that we are undoufcitedly their first choice 
and that was Jsefore the complete solution was 
jjlaunched. It you have just purchased your Amiga 
and are noi sure whal lo buy next, then just read 
the comments or send for full review and demo disk,
